Whatever Happened to Wesley Clark?

Former NATO Supreme Commander Wesley Clark was out in force on Tuesday in a Democratic National Committee email blast against presidential candidate Mitt Romney. Clark criticized Romney's classification of Russia as "without question, our number one geopolitical foe" in an appearance on CNN.

"Surely one lesson of the 21st Century is that America's security in the world depends on making more friends and fewer enemies," Clark said in a statement released by the DNC. "Governor Romney's statement sounds like a rehash of Cold War fears."

Clark's largely led a private life since his 2004 presidential bid and his statement would carry more weight if not for his history discussing relations with Russia.

In 2008, he issued a statement criticizing Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain's national security experience.
