LARRY KING, CNN ANCHOR: Now let's pick up some of the remarks of General Wesley Clark. He's in Bedford, New Hampshire.
WESLEY CLARK (D), PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE: ... willing to stand up to the real threat of Osama bin Laden and al Qaeda.
They deserve top-notch health care and the drugs to stay healthy. They deserve a first-class education and a shot at being just a little better off than their parents.
This is what working families deserve, and that's why I'm running to be president of the United States.
I know what it's like to struggle to make ends meet and watch every penny that you have. I didn't grow up with much. My father died when I was four; he left us with less than a few months rent.
My mom took a job as a secretary to make the ends meet. And that's why as president, I will never, ever forget where I'm from and who I'm for: America's working families.
And these aren't my values alone. They're Democratic Party values. That's what this party is all about.
And we've got to open the doors in this party to every person who shares our values.
Because when we take on George Bush this fall, we want everyone to join us, no matter where you're from what your background is or what your party registration might say.
I can never repay the people of New Hampshire for their kindness and friendship over the last few months. And I want to thank all of my supporters, my staff, all of the veterans who worked so hard, my state director, Steve Beauchard (ph)...
... our state chairs, Dudley (ph), Jim Norman (ph), Susan Putney (ph) and George Bruno.
