In der Hoffnung, wenigstens eine Kammer des US-Kongresses für die Demokraten zu gewinnen, unterstützte er mit Spendensammlungen und Wahlkämpfen seit zahlreiche demokratische Kandidaten, vor allem in traditionell republikanisch dominierten Wahlbezirken.
News and World Report ran a story two weeks later claiming Clark had considered a political run as a Republican. Clark, coming from a non-political background, had no position papers to define his agenda for the public.
Once in the campaign, however, several volunteers established a network of connections with the media, and Clark began to explain his stances on a variety of issues.
He was, as he had told The Washington Post in October, pro-choice and pro-affirmative action. He backed environmental causes such as promising to reverse "scaled down rules" the Bush administration had applied to the Clean Air and Clean Water Acts and dealing with the potential effects of global warming by reducing greenhouse gas emissions from vehicles, livestock flatulence and other sources.
Some, such as Clark biographer Antonia Felix,  have speculated that Clark's inexperience at giving " soundbite " answers hurt him in the media during his primary campaign.
Clark said, "At the time, I probably would have voted for it, but I think that's too simple a question," then "I don't know if I would have or not.
I've said it both ways because when you get into this, what happens is you have to put yourself in a position—on balance, I probably would have voted for it.
He was forced to continue to clarify his position and at the second primary debate he said, "I think it's really embarrassing that a group of candidates up here are working on changing the leadership in this country and can't get their own story straight I would have never voted for war.
The war was an unnecessary war, it was an elective war, and it's been a huge strategic mistake for this country.
Another media incident started during the New Hampshire primary September 27, , when Clark was asked by space shuttle astronaut Jay C. Buckey what his vision for the space program was after the Space Shuttle Columbia disaster.
Clark responded he was a great believer in the exploration of space but wanted a vision well beyond that of a new shuttle or space plane.
I'd like to know what's out there beyond the solar system. But I can't believe that in all of human history we'll never ever be able to go beyond the speed of light to reach where we want to go.
I happen to believe that mankind can do it. I've argued with physicists about it. I've argued with best friends about it. I just have to believe it.
It's my only faith-based initiative. Clark center with his wife Gertrude right in Seattle, Washington on August 19, The Iowa caucuses marked a turning point in the campaign for the Democratic nomination, however, as front-runners Dean and Dick Gephardt garnered results far lower than expected, and John Kerry and John Edwards' campaigns benefited in Clark's absence.
Clark performed reasonably well in later primaries, including a tie for third place with Edwards in the New Hampshire primary and a narrow victory in the Oklahoma primary over Edwards.
However, he saw his third-place finishes in Tennessee and Virginia as signs that he had lost the South, a focus of his campaign. He withdrew from the race on February 11, , and announced his endorsement of John Kerry at a rally in Madison, Wisconsin, on February A woman holds a Clark sign with one of his slogans at a Ned Lamont rally Clark attended in Clark campaigned heavily throughout the midterm election campaign, supporting numerous Democrats in a variety of federal, statewide,  and state legislature campaigns.
Clark has opposed taking military action against Iran and in January he criticized what he called "New York money people" pushing for a war.
This led to accusations of antisemitism. Clark was mentioned as a potential presidential candidate on the Democratic ticket before endorsing Hillary Clinton for President.
Clark, however, publicly endorsed Kansas governor Kathleen Sebelius for the position, introducing her as "the next Vice President of the United States" at a June fundraiser in Texas.
On June 29, , Clark made comments on Face the Nation that were critical of Republican John McCain , calling into question the notion that McCain's military service alone had given him experience relevant to being president.
That large squadron in the navy that he commanded—it wasn't a wartime squadron. He hasn't been in there and ordered the bombs to fall. Clark's retort, however, is what drew rebuke.
In referring to McCain's military experience, he stated: "Well, I don't think riding in a fighter plane and getting shot down is a qualification to be president.
However, Clark has received the backing of several prominent liberal groups such as MoveOn. Yes, we were still on track for going against Iraq, he said.
But there was more. This was being discussed as part of a five-year campaign plan, he said, and there were a total of seven countries, beginning with Iraq, then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia,Sudan and finishing off Iran.
Wesley Clark has been awarded numerous honors, awards, and knighthoods over the course of his military and civilian career.

Starting just after the Sept. Matt Drudge has done his homework. He's come up with Republican Wesley Clark.
We need them there. Drudge continues with Clark on American military involvement overseas:. And do you ever ask why it is the Europeans, the people that make the Mercedes and the BMW's that got so much money can't put some of that money in their own defense programs and they need us to do their defense for them?
Don't you ever believe it when you hear foreign leaders making nasty comments about us. That's them playing to their domestic politics as they misread it.
Because when you talk to the people out there, they love us. They love our values. They love what we stand for in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
So there you have it: Bush-praising-Republican Wesley Clark. Indecisive on important matters? Right on target, brothers and sisters. Right on target.
At least 14 people died on April 12, when a US Airforce bomber fired on a railway bridge near the Serbian village of Grdenicka just as a passenger train was crossing the bridge.
Following the initial strike of the train, the pilot returned to make a second sweep of the burning bridge and dropped a bomb on a carriage that had not been hit by the first assault.
At the time NATO described the bombing of the commuter train as a tragic accident. NATO's presentation of events, it now emerges, was based on doctored video recordings and misleading descriptions of what took place aboard the fighter plane.
According to Clark, the films made clear that the passenger train was approaching too fast for the pilot, who was concentrating on the difficult business of guiding the bombs, to react.
Clark may have violated federal election laws by discussing his presidential campaign during recent paid appearances, according to campaign finance experts.
Clark, a newcomer to presidential politics, touted his candidacy during paid appearances at DePauw University in Indiana and other campuses after he entered the presidential race on Sept.
Under the laws governing the financing of presidential campaigns, candidates cannot be paid by corporations, labor unions, individuals or even universities for campaign-related events.
The Federal Election Commission FEC considers such paid political appearances akin to a financial contribution to a candidate. New York Post, September 26, A video released by Republicans, taped at a Arkansas GOP fund-raiser, shows Clark praising Bush, the first President Bush and Ronald Reagan for "great" or "tremendous" leadership and painting the Clinton administration as clueless.
The video also hints that Clark voted for Bush in , since he seems to side with Bush in the controversy over counting military ballots from Florida.

His awards include the Presidential Medal of Freedom, Defense Distinguished Service Medal five awards , Silver star, bronze star, purple heart, honorary knighthoods from the British and Dutch governments, and numerous other awards from other governments, including award of Commander of the Legion of Honor France.
He has also been awarded the Department of State Distinguished Service Award and numerous honorary doctorates and civilian honors. The Army had already selected another general for the post.
Because President Clinton and General Shalikashvili believed Clark was the best man for the post, he eventually received the nomination.
Shalikashvili noted he "had a very strong role in [Clark's] last two jobs". On September 22, , the United Nations Security Council introduced Resolution calling for an end to hostilities in Kosovo , and Richard Holbrooke again tried to negotiate a peace.
Then U. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright tried to force Yugoslavia into allowing separation of Kosovo with the Rambouillet Agreement , which Yugoslavia refused.
Clark was not at the Rambouillet talks. And if they tell me to bomb you, I'm going to bomb you good. Resolution following Yugoslavia's refusal of the Rambouillet Agreement.
However, critics note that Resolution was a call for cessation of hostilities and does not authorize any organization to take military action.
Clark felt, however, that he was not being included enough in discussions with the National Command Authority , leading him to describe himself as "just a NATO officer who also reported to the United States".
Clark eventually secured an invitation to the summit, but was told by Cohen to say nothing about ground troops, and Clark agreed. Clark returned to SHAPE following the summit and briefed the press on the continued bombing operations.
Clark later defended his remarks, saying this was a "complete misunderstanding of my statement and of the facts," and President Clinton agreed that Clark's remarks were misconstrued.
Regardless, Clark received a call the following evening from Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Hugh Shelton , who said he had been told by Secretary Cohen to deliver a piece of guidance verbatim: "Get your fucking face off the TV.
No more briefings, period. That's it. The bombing campaign received criticism when it bombed the Radio Television of Serbia headquarters on April 23, The attack which killed sixteen civilian employees was labeled as a war crime by Amnesty International  and as an act of terrorism by Noam Chomsky.
The operation had been organized against numerous Serbian targets, including "Target , the Federal Procurement and Supply Directorate Headquarters", although the intended target building was actually meters away from the targeted area.
The embassy was located at this mistaken target, and three Chinese journalists were killed. Clark's intelligence officer called Clark taking full responsibility and offering to resign, but Clark declined, saying it was not the officer's fault.
Tenet would later explain in testimony before the United States House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence on July 22, , that the targeting system used street addresses, which gave inaccurate positions for air bombings.
He also said that the various databases of off-limit targets did not have the up-to-date address for the relatively new embassy location. The bombing resulted in an estimated civilian deaths and wounded, as reported to the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia.
This all came to a head on October 5 in the so-called Bulldozer Revolution. The Democratic Opposition of Serbia won a majority in parliamentary elections that December.
Russian forces had arrived in Kosovo and were heading for the airport on June 12, , two days after the bombing campaign ended, expecting to help police that section of Kosovo.
Clark, on the other hand, had planned for the Kosovo Force to police the area. Clark called then-Secretary General of NATO, Javier Solana , and was told "of course you have to get to the airport" and "you have transfer of authority" in the area.
The stand-off lasted two weeks. Russian forces continued to occupy the airport, until eventually an agreement was secured for them to be integrated into peace-keeping duties, while remaining outside of NATO command.
The refusal was criticized by some senior U. During hearings in the United States Senate , Senator John Warner suggested that the refusal might have been illegal, and that if it was legal, rules potentially should be changed.
Clark would retire soon after. Clark received another call from General Shelton in July in which he was told that Secretary Cohen wanted Clark to leave his command in April , less than three years after he assumed the post.
Ralston was not going to be appointed Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff due to an extramarital affair in his past, and the SACEUR position was said to be the last potential post for him.
Clark spent the remainder of his time as SACEUR overseeing peacekeeper forces and, without a new command to take, was forced into retirement from the military on May 2, Rumors persisted that Clark was forced out due to his contentious relationship with some in Washington, D.
The Department of Defense said it was merely a "general rotation of American senior ranks". I'm not going to say whether I'm a Republican or a Democrat.
I'll just say Wes won't get my vote. Clark began a public speaking tour in the summer of and approached several former government officials for advice on work after life in government, including House Speaker Newt Gingrich , White House Chief of Staff Mack McLarty , and Richard Holbrooke.
Clark took McLarty's advice to move back to Little Rock, Arkansas , and took a position with Stephens Inc, an investment firm headquartered there.

Clark has said that he began to truly define his politics only after his military retirement and the presidential election , won by George W. Clark had a conversation with Condoleezza Rice in which she told him that the war in Kosovo would not have occurred under Bush.
Clark found such an admission unsettling, as he had been selected for the SACEUR position because he believed more in the interventionist policies of the Clinton administration.
He said he would see it as a sign that things were "starting to go wrong" with American foreign policy under Bush. He said the war was "never [about] WMD or regime change" and believes "the connection to the War on Terrorism was not shown.
Clark met with a group of wealthy New York Democrats including Alan Patricof to tell them he was considering running for the presidency in the election.
