Why is Wesley Clark Dodging the Factor? 

This is Bill O'Reilly at his funniest, and at the height of his delusions of grandeur. I think the greatest aspect of this piece is that O'Reilly simply assumes that the reason Clark won't come on his show is that Wesley Clark is AFRAID of Bill O'Reilly. But why is he afraid?

"So why is General Clark afraid? I don't know for sure. I can only put forth an educated guess. Number one, he's not running his own campaign. Unlike Dean, Gephardt, Edwards, and Lieberman, who are definitely calling their own shots, Clark is not. He's been handled by advisers of President Clinton. And those folks don't like me very much.

General Clark is new at the political game and is deferring to the spinners and consultants. This does not bode well for Clark. Americans don't want a potential president who's not in charge. Also, while the general does media interviews all the time, he usually chooses soft venues, even though the no-spin zone of course is anything but soft."

I mean, I'm sure war-torn Bosnia is NOTHING compared to the no-spin zone.

Just go read the whole thing to get the full effect.
