Oh, You're a GENERAL? - Wesley Clark is proving to be one of the least gracious political candidates in recent memory. Last night on "Larry King Live" and today on the campaign trail, he points out that he retired from the military as a general and Sen. John Kerry was only a lieutenant. Who cares? Kerry served honorably in Vietnam (as he is fond of pointing out) and disparaging his service only makes Clark look petty. Of course, compared to some of the things Clark has said about President Bush, his comments on Kerry are practically an endorsement.
