Gen. Clark Considering Hillary Veep Offer

Soon-to-be presidential candidate Gen. Wesley Clark told CNN last week that he wouldn't consider running as any other Democrat's vice president.

But a fresh report claims he's willing to make at least one exception - for New York Sen. Hillary Clinton.

"The talk in top Bill Clinton circles is that retired Gen. Wesley Clark would consider the running mate's job for one candidate only," says U.S. News & World Report's "Washington Whispers."

Citing "key advisers to the former prez," the magazine reports that "a Hillary-Wes ticket, while unlikely, is 'on the table.'"

Last week the ex-president told a group of key fund-raisers gathered at the former first couple's Chappaqua mansion that he thought the Democratic Party had only two real stars: Hillary and Gen. Clark.

Mr. Clinton pointedly left out any mention of the nine Democrats currently seeking the White House, while his wife told the crowd to stay on board "for my next campaign, whatever that may be."

Sen. Clinton has been desperate to burnish her national security credentials, especially in the wake of her husband's admission last year that he turned down a deal for Osama bin Laden's release to the U.S.

Weeks after her husband admitted to the blunder, Sen. Clinton told a New York audience that her top three priorities were "national security, national security and national security."

"Having Clark team up with her would go a long way to reassure independents that the Clintons won't give away the store again," one longtime Hillary watcher told NewsMax.

Yeah, it's newsmax. They play as straight as a supermarket Tabloid.

In all seriousness I saw these headlines on their magazine a month or two back. (not exact wording, going by memory)

*State Department considers sale of Alaskan Islands to Russia

*Monica's secret plan to run for president and disgrace Hillary if she enters the primary.

Those may just be two, but they are all you need to know.

If you can't find a credible source, don't post it.

Yeah, we aren't interested in opinions here. I think that's a little harsh, if you don't think its credible, don't read it.

NewsMAX is quite paranoid. For Clark he can get a lot of moderate votes as long as he doesn't get mixed in with Hilary. She's not going to appeal to the middle as much and may scare the moderates away too much.

I have no problem with opinion pieces. I do have a problem with these tabloid-like news stories that just try to mislead people by asserting 2nd-hand rumors as facts.
If you have more credible sources, please post them. If we can fing out that this is even close to being true, it would certainly be interesting. Until then, its just a waste of everyone's time.

Correction, its a waste of your time.

One man's tabloid is another man's oracle. I think newsMAX is crap, but I'm not the only one here, and neither are you. If I see something I think is BS than I usually won't post, so as not be a waste of my time. You might find this a lot easier.

With Hillary as VP, Clark better watch out or else he'd end up like Vince Foster.

You've mixed it up, the rumor is that HILLARY runs for president and General Clark serves as V.P. Just thought I'd clarify.
