On Sunday, June 29, former Gen. Wesley Clark said to CBS News moderator Bob Schieffer, "He (McCain) has been a voice on the Senate Armed Services Committee and he has traveled all over the world, but he hasn't held executive responsibility," Clark said. "That large squadron in the Navy that he commanded _ that wasn't a wartime squadron."
Hmmmm. Let's think now. What exactly is Obama supporter Wesley Clark laboring to say this time? That John McCain lacks "executive responsibility" because he did not command a squadron in wartime but only in peacetime and therefore that peacetime executive responsibility does not count? Or is he trying to say that McCain lacks "executive responsibility" compared with freshman Sen. Barack Obama who just has oodles and oodles of experience in executive responsibility as "a community organizer?" It was a position that Obama says he held between college and law school from the middle 1980s in Chicago and few people can remember or fully explain just what the duties of that job were or who Obama reported to or what if any evaluation forms might exist about his tenure.
