Retired Gen. Wesley Clark, who ran for president in 2004, has questioned Sen. John McCain's qualifications.

(CNN) - Sen. John McCain's campaign on Monday called retired Gen. Wesley Clark's remarks that McCain lacks command experience "the lowest form of politics."

Clark, a military adviser for Sen. Barack Obama, questioned Sunday whether McCain's military experience qualified him to be commander in chief.

The McCain campaign has called on Obama to condemn the comments.

"I think it's kind of sad," McCain campaign manager Rick Davis said Monday on CNN's "American Morning."

    Nothing's wrong with Clark's comment. Dead on!! Why does being a POW qualify one to be Commander-in-Chief. May make McCain a hero, but not a great general or diplomat!

    What is sad is that John McCain is a bitter angry OLD man. He met with the Grahams and even they would not endorse him. He missed his shot at president when he lost to W and now W and McCain not only want to leave us in Iraq for the next 100 years, they want to push us into IRAN!

    Enough is enough! Congress needs to act now to stop Bush from his evil plans. And McCain is more of the same.

    Stop Bush, Impeach Bush, Hold Bush accountable as a war criminal!

  4. saga for Obama

    you know whats funny to me is McCains camp is all up in arms about the comments which happen to be true...they like those words like ATTACK...Threat...and Security. McCains only redeeming quality must be the fact that he was a POW. otherwise why would McCain be soooo touchy.
    whaa whaa whaa...that bad man made fun of me...blah blah blah. grow up please McCain. this man gave his opinion, last i heard freedom of speech was allowed hear in the good ol US.
    paleeeez...wonder what McCain would say if Clark talked about KEATING 5, savings and loans, tax evasion, Bushs tax cuts, McCains infidelities, change on off shore drilling, immigration and on and on and on.

    this man crying about Clark and we are supposed to think he is strong on terror...give me a break.
    grow up McCain...
