Wesley Clark is in Birmingham today and gave a speech at the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church there. What impressed me about the speech was the upfront criticism of tactics of the Republicans to deny the vote to african americans. Clark makes no bones about the fact that he thinks in 2000 the only "vote that George W. Bush won was the one that took place in the chambers of the United States Supreme Court." I like the fact he went to what is hollowed ground for many who lived through and remember the days of the civil rights movement. I like the fight in this speech; it might even convince this middle-aged lefty to vote for a General.
