Gen. Clark shows support for Bob Tuke

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Retired Gen. Wesley Clark says he wants to see Democratic Party Chairman Bob Tuke in the U.S. Senate because it's time for new leadership in the war on terror.

Clark was in Nashville on Thursday to support Tuke, who captured the nomination in the recent Tennessee primary to face Republican U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander this fall.

Clark says Tuke, a Vietnam veteran, has the leadership Washington needs to deal with the war in Iraq.

Clark called going into Iraq a "strategic blunder." He said the American troops and their allies have done everything we've asked them to do, and now "it's time to wrap this thing up."
