Wesley Clark seemed to win over the crowd at New England College in Henniker, New Hampshire tonight. After a few opening remarks, Clark took questions which covered a broad range of topics. Addressing the question of being a Democrat, the former general explained that as events continued to push him to speak out, he realized that being pro-choice, pro-affirmative action, and pro-environment, he could either be the loneliest Republican in America or be a Democrat.
He was articulate, personable and convincing. If you read this before 1am eastern time, Saturday morning, it will be replayed. Catch it!
UPDATE The interest in Clark was apparent throughout his day in New Hampshire. His town hall meeting tonight drew an overflow crowd of more than 300 people at New England College in Henniker. There Clark fielded questions on foreign and domestic policy for more than an hour, was regularly interrupted by applause and, judging from interviews after the session, impressed many with his confidence and knowledge of issues.
