Retired General Wesley Clark Endorses Hillary Clinton

Retired General Wesley Clark announced today he will endorse Hillary Clinton for President. Clark ran as a Democratic candidate in 2004. Clark was the Supreme Allied Commander of NATO, and led the allied military operation in the Kosovo war in 1999 under President Bill Clinton. Clark is an old friend of the Clintons. “I’m very pleased today to announce my endorsement of Senator Clinton to be our next President of the United States,” Clark told a group of reporters. “She’ll be a great leader for the United States of America, and I think she’ll be a great commander in chief for the men and women in the armed forces.” According to his website WesPac, “Senator Hillary Clinton has earned the support of millions of Americans in her campaign for president — and today I am pleased to count myself among them. The world has reached a critical point, and we need a leader in the White House with the courage, intelligence and humility to navigate through many troubling challenges to our security at home and abroad. I believe Senator Clinton is that leader, and I whole-heartedly endorse her for President of the United States. Senator Clinton and I share a worldview in which diplomacy is the best first-strike tool in our arsenal; in today’s complicated global system, the United States should be making more friends than enemies.” Clark adds, “Never before have so many Americans had our well-being so closely tied to world events. Our economic and national security has become more complicated than ever before, and we deserve a leader who draws on wisdom, compassion, intelligence and moral courage — in short, we need Hillary Clinton. She is tough but fair, a rock-solid leader equal to the many weighty challenges ahead of us.” After Clark’s announcement Clinton said on her website, “I am deeply admiring of General Clark’s record of leadership for our country and his appreciation of the complexity of the world in which we live today. I’m looking forward to his involvement in my campaign and working together to bring the change this country needs.”
