    General strikes out at two senators 

    Retired Gen. Wesley Clark continued his double-barreled attack on his two main rivals while campaigning in Tennessee Friday.

    During a 7 a.m. interview with a local AM radio station, he took a swipe at Sen. John Edwards of North Carolina. Edwards is the only other southerner in the race, and both men have set their sights on winning Tennessee on Feb. 10.

    "John Edwards has voted against programs to help our veterans,'' said Clark, a retired four-star general who has courted veterans throughout his campaign. "In 1999, Edwards voted against adding $1.3 billion in funding for the Veterans Health Administration. Real leaders don't blink. ... Sen. Edwards voted against veterans when the going got tough.''

    Later, while speaking to supporters at Swett's restaurant in Nashville,
    Clark took issue with Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry's recent comment that Democrats could potentially win the White House without carrying the South.

    "The facts show no Democrat has won the presidency in the last 40 years unless they carried the South,'' said Clark. "Ask Al Gore. He would be president if he'd carried some southern states, including Tennessee.''
