I am not much of a fan of General Clark, but I think this is very cool:
The live internet chat with Wesley Clark starts at 5pm ET–now–you can access the chat here.
If you want to participate (they expect 3,000 to log on), here are the details:
Public IRC Server: irc://irc.forclark.com
Closed Read-Only Channel: #wireside
Open Discussion Channel: #clark04
We were flattered to be invited by the campaign to submit a question– and we did–we hope it’s one Gen. Clark chooses to answer. Here are the blogger participants:
Kevin Kraynick “Tooney Bin”
Ted Barlow “Crooked Timber”
Mark A.R. Kleiman “A Fair and Balanced Weblog”
Bill Scher, Executive Editor, “LiberalOasis”
Jeralyn Merritt “TalkLeft: The Politics of Crime”
Ruy Teixeira “Donkey Rising”
Digby “Digby’s Hullabaloo”
I would like to see more of these live internet chats with the candidates.
On the one hand, it’s very cool, on the other hand, I would find it a little disturbing if any candidate of any party invited me to ask a question. I’d feel like I must be slipping…
