Hillary, Of Course, Says Wes Clark

So onetime presidential hopeful Wes Clark, the retired Army boss at NATO, has endorsed Sen. Hillary Clinton for president.

But his praise wasn't just a nod to her during a recent interview. He called her a battler extraordinaire: "Women can fight, and women can also lead. America is ready for the right leader."

He gushes about her brains: "She does her homework and has a curiosity and pursues the evidence that leads to a logical decision." And "she is very experienced."

There's more: "She is a very resolute person." So he's just buttering her up for a chance to be a possible Clinton veep nominee, right?

Here he punts: "There's nothing you can say to a question like that."
