E-Mail to a
is one of my unpublished replies to one of many responses to my
e-mail published in an influential Democratic Newsgroup about
the formal entry of General Clark into the Presidential Race.
know a lot of one-time Democrats who left the Party because they
saw us as not appreciating the sacrifices they or their loved
ones have made in military service to our country. It's
just sick that they then fall for the patriotic rhetoric of the
Far Right and selflessly shed more of their blood for the
all-too-often selfish motives of some powerful clique.
think General Clark's candidacy MIGHT represent a unique
opportunity to get back in touch with a lot of the "blue
collar" people out there, who do most of the fighting and
dying, not to mention a lot of the actual work and
"economic stimulus" of the country.
it's an issue of "respect". Maybe I'm just tired
of we Democrats being seen as weak and somehow un-American, when
nothing could be further from the truth. I don't know.
