"Our Man Clark"

If elections for US President were held in Croatia today, Wesley Clark would probably win. He is Catholic and he used to bomb Serbia. Those two characteristics are enough to make Clark "our man" for most Croatians.

It is very likely that the large segments of American electorate, or at least American political establishments, would embrace same sentiments and see Wesley Clark as the best alternative for USA and the only alternative to Bush (unlike "unelectable leftie" Howard Dean).

This Croatian is, however, less enthusiastic about Clark and, if given the choice between Clark and Bush, I would probably go for the latter.

You might say that Bush started few bloody and pointless wars. But those bloody and pointless wars were relatively minor in scipe and had some sort of rational or pseudo-rational political justification. On the other hand, we all know what Clark was about to launch over his own bruised ego.
