The Clark Debate

TNR is conducting an online debate on the Clark question. It is much like their previous debate about Howard Dean.

Noam Schieber has a post up that contains many of the same arguments I have made about Clark: that he is a neophyte when it comes to campaigning and that his supporters may be presuming to much if they think the anti-Dean effort will instantly coalesce around him if he were to announce. The latter is a point I am becoming more and more convinced of since I first proposed it. Clark, far from impeding Dean's march to the nomination, might actually fracture an already fractious group contending for the "Anybody-But-Dean" vote and thereby make it easier for Dean to come out ahead.
