I got thinking of this a few days ago. If Al Gore had somehow CONTINUED appeals to the voting in Florida (a brilliant and humble move on his part to stop appealing) but what WOULD the World be like after 8 years of Gore RATHER THAN GWB?
I won't comment much now, I really want to see a few replies first.
I'll make one observation, I'm sure 9-11 would have likely happened on his watch too, unless Gore really pushed computer monitoring, wire tapping, etc.
But financially we sure were on top of the world. My big beef against Clinton had always been he and Janet Reno had tore apart the tech sector (which MUCH of America) had vested great monies and done well. Tearing down and labeling Microsoft as a Monopoly hurt us all. Would THEY have persued Microsoft if Gore had USED CLINTON in Gores Campaigne? Clinton was hurt by Gores lack of using Clintons GREAT repore with the public to help get Gore in office.
That was BRAVE of GORE to stand in the middle of LIBERAL by not using Clintons popularity, due to his stained Presidency :-P , and still make a successful campage all the way to a Supreme and State Ruling on GWB's win (the heck with the popular vote, why should OUR VOTE COUNT - ugh) Just think, if you live in a state that means SQUAT electorally, why on Earth VOTE? I would tell them to SHOVE IT.
We need a NATIONAL PRIMARY DAY, Let's all stop trying to be first or last or whatever your reason, let's all vote on Super Tuesday and get it the heck done with. That way, no needs for Caucuses, just hit EVERYTHING that matters, it should make a heck of a board game, and get their butts out of New England and the Mid-West for three freaking months.
It would have been a DIFFERENT WORLD, maybe NOT better, but surely DIFFERENT. What do YOU think it would be like?
