Obama to Wesley Clark: Yo, Find Somewhere Else to Be Come Convention Time, You Hear?

Damn, the bus just finished backing over the ample carcass of racist Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick and now Team Obama has told loose cannon and nutroots darling Wesley Clark to make himself scarce come convention time.

Hmm, I wonder why?
General Wesley Clark is not attending the Democratic National Convention. I was told by General Clark's personal office in Little Rock that he would not be attending.

Clark was informed by Barack Obama's people that there was no reason to come.

General Clark has been given no role of any kind at the convention.

Rubbing salt in the wound even more, the "theme" of Wednesday's Democratic convention agenda is "Securing America."
Clark is loved by the netroots -- and I'm sure that they would hope that the Obama campaign will revisit this decision to exclude General Wesley Clark from the entire Democratic National Convention ageda [sic].
Kilpatrick obviously is dispensible. Obama will be getting 104% of the black vote according to the latest polls, but tossing Clark overboard won't fare well with the hardcore haters on the left, especially since they've been clamoring for Clark as VP.

This should prove amusing.

H/T Hot Air.

Sister Toldjah has some thoughts.
But the bottom line here is that one of two things are happening: Either Clark is throwing out a smokescreen and really will have a role at the convention - the VP role - and is just trying to throw everyone off, or he really has been dumped. My money’s on the latter. He, like Cindy Sheehan was to the far left anti-war brigade, has done the dirty work Obama himself wants to appear to be ’above’ (we’ve seen this before, haven’t we?) and has probably outlived his usefulness.
