Should We Trust Hugh Shelton?

I don’t see why we should trust him over Wesley Clark. What he has done

by saying that there were unspecified problems with Clark’s character

and integrity is to squirt a little bit of poison gas into the air. If

there’s something voters ought to know when assessing Clark, Shelton

should tell us what it is. Otherwise, he should keep quiet–unless he

wants to be known as a smear artist.
