My Conversation With Wesley Clark (VIDEO)

In advance of President Obama's primetime address on Tuesday, the day U.S. combat operations in Iraq officially conclude, I spoke today with former NATO Supreme Allied Commander Wesley Clark.

During our conversation -- airing tonight on PBS -- I asked Gen. Clark how the American public should view our engagement in Iraq beyond the toppling of Saddam Hussein.
