I'm a bit embarrassed to say Bobbie, but I've never used clarity in Lightroom, but I had a quick look on google, and this one looked quite helpful... now I'm going to check it out myself.

Bobbie,
Your photo (and what you want to do with it) will dictate whether you need to adjust Clarity in Lightroom for any file type (jpeg, raw, etc). For the Readers Digest version: increasing clarity adds punch to an image.

thanks for the definition... i thought you needed it in raw since it doesnt have some of the "punch" already in photo that has some processing in camera with jpeg so didnt know if you need to use with jpegs
