I was thinking about Gen. Wesley Clark's comments about Sen. John McCain, and it made me think of comparing a $10 bill with a $1 bill. The $10 bill is wrinkled, tattered and torn, and the $1 bill is new and crisp without a crease in it. And then you say, "This $10 bill just won't cover the gas and groceries you need for the coming week. You should choose this $1 bill because it's brand new and clean and never been folded."

It just doesn't make sense. Clark's comments only emphasize how starkly empty Sen. Barack Obama's resume is.
