"'I was lucky,' Clark said of his college education at West Point. 'I knew I didn't have the money for college. But the military paid for my education -- and I paid them back by serving. It was the best deal going: I got to serve my country, got a great education, and didn't leave school with a pile of debt. Every young person in American deserves that same opportunity.' "
Clark is close to scratching himself off my list. It's one thing to bait your opponents with class warfare -- hell, most of the Democrats are doing that already -- and while I don't like the speaking-ill-of-fellow-Dems, that's the way the game is apparently played this year unless you're John Edwards.
But this is the kind of thing you apologize for, not try to cover-up by putting the opposite comments on your web site.
Yes, boys and girls, WE paid for General Clark's education, and while I can forgive him forgetting this fact in the midst of the election -- it's so easy to become fumble-mouthed when you say the same thing for the zillionth time -- it's much harder to forgive the 1984ish editing of history.
