(Wesley Clark dropped out of the race in February.)
Family: married, one son
Current Job: Chairman & CEO of Wesley K. Clark & Associates, a strategic advisor and consulting firm.
Strengths: As one of the country's most respected retired military officers, the former NATO Supreme Allied Commander would bring 33 years of service in the U.S. Army to the White House. His military expertise and experience make him a favorable candidate, given the unstable worldwide climate and the continued threat of terrorism.
Weaknesses: Clark's late entrance into the presidential race could hurt him. The fact that his opponents declared their candidacies months before him will put Clark at a disadvantage, both in terms of fund-raising and national name recognition.
Best Issues: national security, defense
"...I've spent my entire life in public service, except for the last three years, and it's very hard not to think in terms of the welfare of the country," Clark said. "And when you see the country in trouble, in challenge, yes, you'd like to pitch in and help."
