Retired U.S. Gen. Wesley Clark, former commander of NATO, is becoming an increasingly ubiquitous presence on television in the run-up to war with Iraq - even though he once criticized former high-ranking U.S. military personnel who hired themselves out as analysts and talking heads to television news channels.
Some of his former colleagues in the military have been increasingly critical of Clark in recent days, especially after his speech to a Democrat fund-raiser in Washington, United Press International reported today.
According to one in attendance, the former NATO commander aligned himself "100 percent with the liberal Democrats" on Iraq.
Says UPI: "The speech has led some to speculate that Clark - once rumored to be considering a bid for governor or U.S. senate from Arkansas - may be angling for a bid as Al Gore's running mate in 2004."
