In Defense of General Clark, James Carville

One of my favorite Clintonistas of all time comes to the defense of another fine Clintonista and Vietnam war hero, General Wesley Clark.

At the end of clip, Carville mentions the recent discovery that McCain has been cozying up to the group behind the Swift Boat ads in 2004. According to USA Today, the "maverick" has accepted $70,000 in donations from members of the group and their relatives.

So while John McCain is manufacturing outrage about an attack on his war record that never happened, he collects donations from a group that is responsible for one of the nastiest smear campaigns, leveled against a Vietnam war hero, in the history of presidential politics.

So much for leadership you can believe in.
