Wes Clark slams influence of “New York money people” on Iran policy

The full quote, lest you doubt the context:
When we asked him what made him so sure the Bush administration was headed in this direction [of war with Iran], he replied: “You just have to read what’s in the Israeli press. The Jewish community is divided but there is so much pressure being channeled from the New York money people to the office seekers.”
I’m sure by “money people” he just means “AIPAC,” or “neocons.” Or “hook noses.”
It’s the code-word flip side of “San Francisco liberal” but with a thousand times the amount of historical baggage. That’s the bad news. The good news? He’s probably the nutroots frontrunner now for president.
Vote Clark/Gibson in ’08!
