Clark is a Democrat

Wesley Clark made a big announcement today.

He declared his party affiliation: "As I looked at where the country is now domestically and look at our policies abroad, I have to say that I'm aligned with the Democratic Party, I like the message the party has. I like what it stands for. [...] I am proud to be a Democrat."

Political junkies like me and V raise an eyebrow, blink, and think, "Okaaay; no real surprise there, why'd you keep it such a big 'secret'?" Meanwhile, the press goes wild!

Kos thinks that it's too late for Clark to run.

I have no frickin' idea. My dream is that he and Dean announce that he'll run as Dean's veep, but I recognize that's not reasonable. I did start reading Clark's book the other night, though, just to get a sense of the guy. He's certainly no dummy.

It's all bad news for Kerry, though, as Clark sucks up all the airtime this week.
