in building a campaign organization. One reason Clark entered
was that he needed to finish his book Winning Modern Wars.
the time of Clark's announcement on Sept. 17, other campaigns had been
building for months; many operatives had long since signed on to work
other candidates. In contrast, Budget Director Andy Kessler
"We didn't have an organization in place when we started."
Barry Wagman noted that the time compression "presented extraordinary
beyond the normal 'organized chaos' of a presidential campaign
and reflected itself in almost every area" from accounting to
finance, field operations, and so forth. What might take months
accomplish in a business operation Clark's team did in weeks. The
campaign attracted a fair number of Clinton veterans, many talented
who showed up at the Little Rock headquarters on spec., and activists
the draft movement. Clark's campaign endured an early shock as
manager Donnie Fowler made an abrupt exit after only three weeks.
A degree of chaos ensued; one staffer later opined that nobody was in
for a period of about two months, another said that things settled down
by mid-October. Melding together two different cultures--campaign
veterans and draft activists--proved to be a challenge. Roles
there were "all sorts of titles floating around." The campaign picked
a fair number of talented staffers from the campaign of Sen. Bob Graham
after he withdrew on Oct. 6. Vanessa Weaver, a former Clinton
whom Clark dubbed the "ExO," played an important role in holding things
together. Weaver eventually recruited Paul Johnson, Sen. Bob
