Enjoy It While You Can, General

General Wesley Clark was pleased that he won the first primary in the nation ... in the tiny New Hampshire town of Dixville Notch:

Of the 15 people casting ballots in the Democratic primary, eight voted for Clark. Sen. John Kerry collected three, Sen. John Edwards had two and Sen. Joe Lieberman and former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean had one each.

"This is a great way to begin the next day," said a smiling Clark in Dixville Notch at about 12:15 a.m. "This is the first election I've had since homeroom student council representative. This is a big step for me."

Yeah, well ... he has nowhere to go but down the rest of the day, and I predict he'll go there rather quickly. Fourth place and out of the money. He'll be battling with Lieberman to hold onto that position, too.
