Former NATO Chief Might Run for President

August 18, 2003

Former NATO commander Gen. Wesley K. Clark said he would decide in two to three weeks whether to seek the Democratic presidential nomination.

Clark, interviewed on CNN's "Late Edition," said he had found an "enormous hunger for leadership" as he toured the country.

Clark singled out House Republican leader Tom DeLay of Texas as an antagonist. DeLay had disparaged Clark, until recently a CNN military analyst, as "a blow-dried Napoleon" pushing his own political agenda under the guise of commentary.
