Wesley Clark may join Howard Dean ticket
September 11 2003 11:00 PM ET
Former Vermont governor and Democratic candidate for president Howard Dean has asked former NATO commander Wesley Clark to be his running mate in his bid for the White House, The Washington Post reports. As governor, Dean signed Vermont's civil unions bill, the first law in the nation to offer many of the rights and responsibilities of marriage to same-sex couples. Clark, who was supreme commander of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization from 1997 to May 2000, has expressed interest in overturning the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy regarding gay and lesbian service members. Both Clark and Dean oppose the war in Iraq.
Both men have refused to confirm or deny the Post report, although sources told the paper that Clark is expected to announce on September 19 whether he will jump into the presidential race himself.
