Superstar Madonna has thrown her weight behind American Presidential hopeful WES CLARK with an impassioned letter on her website.

The MATERIAL GIRL, who is now mostly based in Britain following her marriage to film director Guy Ritchie, calls for the support of DEMOCRAT retired army general because she fears for the future of her two children, ROCCO and LOURDES.

She writes, "I am writing to you because the future I wish for my children is at risk.

"I'm supporting Wes Clark because, in him, I see the qualifications, character and vision that we so desperately need."
