Episode Summary

EDIT
General Wesley Clark
AIRED:
General Wesley Clark, the former Supreme Allied Commander of NATO who liberated Kosovo, returns to address The Oxonian Society.Four-star General Wesley Clark became a major figure on the political scene when he was drafted by popular demand to run for the Democratic nomination for President of the United States in 2003. But this was just one of many exceptional accomplishments of a long and extraordinary career.General Clark will discuss his difficult youth in segregated Arkansas where he was raised by his poor, widowed mother; through the horror of Vietnam where he was wounded; the post-war rebuilding of national security and the struggles surrounding the new world order after the Cold War - as a springboard to reveal his vision for America, at home and in the world. General Wesley Clark will talk about breathtaking battle scenes, poignant personal anecdotes and eye-opening recommendations on the best way forward for the country. Will General Clark throw his hat into the ring to run for president or is he going to be the next secretary of defense? His long awaited book "Time To Lead", will be released around the same time. President Clinton said, "[Clark] was assigned a challenge many experts thought was mission impossible. Instead, thanks to General Clark, we now can declare it mission accomplished" - Oxonian Societymoreless
