LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- Retired General Wesley Clark's response to a request for a one-word answer to whether he will run for president is an emphatic maybe.

The former NATO commander has been traveling the country in recent months sounding like a candidate.

Back home in Little Rock today, Clark told a state Municipal League audience of hundreds that he's seriously considering running for president.

Clark discussed the nine other Democrats seeking their party's presidential nomination. And he talked about what he says are the weak policies of a popular Republican president.

Clark also criticized the Bush tax cut and said the administration lacks an effective strategy for dealing with the consequences of winning the war in Iraq.
