LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- There's now a Draft-Clark-for-President headquarters in retired Army General Wesley Clark's hometown. The national headquarters of the Draft Clark 2004 for President Committee opened Saturday with an open house in a downtown office building at Little Rock.

Clark, who grew up in Little Rock, is a Rhodes Scholar, West Point graduate and former NATO commander. The 58-year-old also is a former foreign policy analyst for C-N-N.

Draft-Clark spokesman Jeff Dailey said people are excited about the prospect of Clark getting in the race. Dailey said Americans are hungry for someone with Clark's leadership in domestic and
global affairs.

Dailey said about a hundred people showed up for the grand opening of the headquarters Saturday in the Lafayette Building.
