Madonna endorses Wesley Clark
From correspondents in Washington – December 17, 2003
Former vice president Al Gore may be supporting Howard Dean, but retired army general Wesley Clark has support in his quest for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination from … Madonna.
The Material Girl yesterday threw her support behind the retired four-star general, one of nine Democrats seeking to replace George W. Bush in the November 2004 election.
“I endorse him because I think he’s a great guy,” the pop superstar said on CNN Tuesday. “I think he’s a natural born leader.”
Madonna believes that because of his military experience Clark “knows how to deal with pressure,” and as the former NATO supremo “has a good handle in foreign policy.”
Clark spokesman Jamal Simmons was star-struck by the endorsement.
