Academy award wining filmmaker Michael Moore, an outspoken opponent of US President George W. Bush and "big government", has declared his official
support for Democratic hopeful Gen. Wesley Clark.
"He is clearly the absolute best hope we have of defeating George W. Bush," Moore said on his website in an article entitled "I'll Be Voting for
Wesley Clark/Good-Bye Mr. Bush"
Notice how Michael has NOT said he's the best man for the job, only the best chance of beating Bush. I'm incredibly weary of military leaders
becoming political leaders, he seems way too much like a wolf in sheeps clothing.
Clark, one of eight Democrats vying for the party's nomination to run against Bush in the November 2 election, welcomed the endorsement, saying Moore
was "an enormous talent and an inspirational figure for millions of Americans.
"I am delighted to have his support, and I am honored by the eloquence and passion of his endorsement letter," Clark said in a statement.
Moore, who also authored "Dude, Where's My Country?", a book that slams Bush and his fellow Republicans, wrote an open letter to Clark in
mid-September, urging him to run for president.
Deanites are presumed to be pissed, Mike's only backing Clark because he's a strong figure... and he has personal beef with Howie.
