Wesley Clark roasts the GOP candidates

(CNN) - Retired Gen. Wesley Clark, a former Democratic presidential candidate, seemed to be enjoying his chance to bash the Republican presidential candidates Monday, making fun of their national security views and spotlighting what he says are their flip-floppy stances.
