Material Girl covers Clark with praise
Tuesday, December 16, 2003 Posted: 6:43 PM EST (2343 GMT)

Madonna enters the political world by endorsing Wesley Clark.

LOS ANGELES, California (CNN) -- The Material Girl has stepped onto the political stage and endorsed Democratic presidential hopeful Wesley Clark.

"I think he has a good handle on foreign policy, I think he's good with people, and I think he has a heart and a consciousness," pop singer Madonna said. "He's interested in spirituality -- I mean, those things mean a lot to me."

The singer and children's book author met Clark a few weeks ago for over an hour. In an interview recorded last week with CNN's Denise Quan, Madonna said they discussed his becoming president.

The singer told Quan she had decided to support the former general and she felt Clark was a natural-born leader.

"As it stands right now, he's got my support," Madonna said.

The two were introduced by "Bowling for Columbine" filmmaker Michael Moore, who was an early supporter of Clark.

Madonna said she saw a few television interviews with Clark and wanted to meet with him herself.

"I think to be the general for as long as he's been, this is a man who knows how to deal with pressure and make decisions under pressure," Madonna said.

Clark, a retired Army general, was NATO's supreme commander during the 1999 air war against Yugoslavia.

He testified Monday and Tuesday in the war crimes trial of former Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic, now held in The Hague. (Full story)

"We're delighted with the endorsement of a superstar for our four-star," said Matt Bennett, a Clark campaign spokesman.

I don't know about you fella's, but that's a great reason [b]not[/b] to vote for Wesley Clark! Not that I was looking for another reason.

Okay, so why do we care what this gutter-slut thinks again?

Well, she frenched Brittany Spears (I dunno how to spell her name). That's gotta count for some "Bi-Slut" points... Brit kissed like half of America. (that whole theory of when you kiss somebody, you kiss everybody they have kissed, and so on, and so on) (yeah, I know it has to do with the other 'dirty deed', but a kiss is the same, just not quite so 'personal'...)

I don't get it. Why does she think endorsing Clark is going to help her record sales? CW
