The DRUDGE REPORT is running a snippet from “MEET THE DEPRESSED”:



RUSSERT: Did you vote for George Bush in 2000?

CLARKE: No, I did not.

RUSSERT: You voted for Al Gore?

CLARKE: Yes, I did. ”

So much for the “Clarke is a Republican” nonsense.


It gets better. INSIGHT is running a story suggesting that:

….an Insight check of Federal Election Commission (FEC) records shows that his only political contributions in the last decade have gone to Democrats.

Clarke is suspected of using his former post in the Bush White House as a weapon with which to slash and wound the president during his re-election campaign against Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.). The Kerry campaign’s coordinator for national security issues, Rand Beers, has described Clarke as his “best friend.” According to the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University, where Clarke and Beers are adjunct lecturers, they teach a course together about terrorism. Clarke’s detailed Harvard biography specifically mentions his service under President Ronald Reagan and the elder President Bush, but says nothing about his eight years working for President Bill Clinton.

So, what Clarke’s about is simply another partisan attack.
As I called it.
