PEMBROKE, N.H. -- A New Hampshire Republican who walked into the gymnasium at the Pembroke Academy on Saturday afternoon and saw the crowd assembled to hear retired Gen. Wesley K. Clark had a one-word reaction: "Wow!"

At least 1,000 people had jammed the building in this Concord suburb (Clark's Web site estimated it at 2,000) for a rally 10 days before the Jan. 27 New Hampshire primary.

John McCain was the last person to draw crowds of that size as he moved toward an 18-point win over George W. Bush in New Hampshire four years ago.

That Clark has star power is clearly shown by the passion he has ignited here. Whether he has staying power -- as McCain ultimately did not -- remains to be seen.
