Memo From Chicago

Footnote — July 3, 2008: At dinner tonight, the subject of Wesley Clark’s attack on Senator McCain came up. I reminded The Wife of what happened — “Wesley Clark is the guy who dissed John McCain.” A friend interjected, “That’s going to be his epitaph now. Not ‘Commander of NATO,’ not ‘Professor at West Point,’ not ‘Presidential Candidate.’ From how on, he’s always going to be ‘The guy who dissed John McCain.'” Funny but sad, both because it’s true.
