Democratic Candidates Respond to News of Saddam's Capture
Wes Clark managed to favorably 'plug' all the Democratic candidates, while making the point (that Dean should have made [see earlier post]) that Saddam's capture doesn't negate the administration's faulty judgments and actions.
"Retired Gen. Wesley Clark, another strident critic of Bush's war policy, told reporters he still stands by past statements opposing the war. 'This was not a necessary war,' he said. 'All candidates want the U.S. mission in Iraq to succeed, and I don't want to see another American soldier injured there. But success in Iraq does not change the judgments of an administration that took us into war. I don't think that the capture of Saddam Hussein in any way invalidates those concerns."
