Retired Army Gen. Wesley Clark came under attack last night in a debate between the nine Democratic presidential candidates for shifting positions on the war in Iraq and for supporting President Bush’s tax cuts.

Clark responded by saying it was "very, very clear" what his position on Iraq always was. He said, "I would never have voted for war. The war was an unnecessary war, it was an elective war, and it’s been a huge strategic mistake for this country."

A CNN/USA Today poll released Thursday, found Clark leading all other Democrats followed by former Vermont Governor Howard Dean. Clark polled at 21 percent, Dean was at 16 percent.
