In her latest TV spot in Iowa, Hillary Clinton tries to burnish her commander-in-chief credentials with a little help from her friends, former General Wesley Clark to be precise.
Clark, a former NATO supreme commander, sought the Democratic nomination in 2004, but proved to be a far better military leader and tactician than politician. His name is among those bandied about as a possible vice presidential pick, should Clinton win the Democratic nomination.
"I see that Hillary’s opponents have started attacking her," Clark says in the ad. "That's politics. What this country needs is leadership."
"I'm Wes Clark; I commanded our forces in Europe when we won the fight to halt ethnic cleansing in Kosovo. I've known Hillary Clinton for 24 years. I know she has what it takes to end the war in Iraq, avert war with Iran, and restore our country’s standing in the world," he continues.
"These are tough times and Hillary Clinton is the right choice for America."
