Wesley Clark in Grand Central

Wesley Clark has been blowing off the Iowa caucuses to concentrate on New Hampshire and to visit in New York. Gothamist saw him at Grand Central yesterday, where he spoke to commuters amid the media scrum. As people jockeyed to tell Clark various things ("I was in the service" or "I'm the CEO of a financial services company"), we could hear his staffers telling others who couldn't get to Clark, "His motorcade is out that door; you'll have a great chance of speaking to him outside, why don't you go wait?" Gothamist contemplated asking Clark if he was going to do any shopping in the city, you know, to support the economy and continue to soften up his image (the Fab Five just made over a military man the other night - imagine what they could do with the General!), but we got hungry and went to buy a bagel.

Clark is apparently gaining on Howard Dean in New Hampshire; all this while Dean is accusing Clark of being a Republican (gasp!).
