Well I'm no expert on Automator, but when you launch automator, opt to make a Service. Then in the Left Most Pane choose Utilities, and from there choose Run Apple Script. Should be straightforward from there.
But why do you need to clear the clipboard? Surely copying something new to the cipboard overwrites what was there?

I agree that something new should overwrite the clipboard but sometimes
mine does not clear on paste. It something is on the clipboard, you cannot
write to the clipboard. Apple used to have a menu item in the Finder to
clear the Clipboard and it is no longer there.
Thank you again.
BTW, I changed the name of your Send via Mail to Send iPhoto via Mail because
my wife was trying use it from Safari to send a picture to someone.
Copying something new overwrites the clipboard contents. To remove something from the clipboard, copy something else.
Mine get constipated from time to time and that is why I wanted the Clear Clipboard Services item. Thanks to your help it works perfect. I don't understand why mine does not always overwrite the
last item but the Clear Clipboard solves the problem.
