Forecast: political storm today UPDATE

Posted By on Mon, Jun 30, 2008 at 8:38 AM

Gen. Wesley Clark said it on CBS yesterday.

I don’t think getting in a fighter plane and getting shot down is a qualification to become president.

The prediction is that the right will go nutz over this today.

UPDATE: Obama condemns Clark statement.

Mainstream media is wildy distorting what Clark said. Kind of reminiscent of how they covered some Clinton campaign statements. Except, this time, the lefty blogs are howling rather than dittoing. At least Obama got some help from a Clinton today:

Statement by Matt McKenna, Director of Communications, Office of President Clinton, on President Clinton's Discussion with Senator Barack Obama:

President Clinton had a very good conversation with Senator Obama today. He renewed his offer to do whatever he can to ensure Senator Obama is our next President.

President Clinton continues to be impressed by Senator Obama and the campaign he has run, and looks forward to campaigning for and with him in the months to come. The President believes that Senator Obama has been a great inspiration for millions of people around the country, and he knows that he will bring the change America needs as our next President.

Some quick ideas on that:
