George Will on Howard Dean, Wesley Clark, and Clark’s (imaginary?) Canadian friend. Will finds that Clark is “not like Ike.” He finds some resemblance, though, between Clark and Sen. Graham, his fellow “deranged moderate.”
As to Dean, Will’s line seems to be that he’s a great candidate for Republicans unless he wins, and he could win. To me, however, Dean is the ideal nominee, period. The ultra-liberal, anti-interventionist positions he has taken probably make him a weaker candidate in the general election than his main rivals (although only marginally so). At the same time, he’s a phony. Thus, his presidency would no more liberal or passive internationally than a Kerry or Gephardt presidency.
