This thread would have made sense - 12 years ago.
Gore was a poor candidate, no two ways about it. But then so were a bunch of others during the past 50 years - Dukakis, Dewey, Dole....
Gore was a good candidate, and I believe Gore would have been a fine president - maybe even great. He was stiff and woody during the campaign, which didn't help him. The biggest problem was the Monica tension between him and Clinton. I'm a big Clinton fan, but the Monica mess cost Gore the presidency - even more so than Jeb Bush, Katherine Harris, and the SCOTUS. Anyway, some dumbass was "awarded" the presidency.
I also believe that Dole would have been a fine president - but he also campaigned poorly. Came across as angry and mean.
I repsect Gore as an intelligent man and no doubt very principled, but he had this air of being landed gentry that I think most of us found off-putting.
He always looked like someone who would be more at home lecturing at MIT or hosting gala events in the Hamptons than doing the things normal American people do everyday.
He lacked that common touch of talking to people across class divides that I think all good politicians need these days.
I don't think Monicagate cost Gore - I think Gore's inability to talk to ordinary people cost Gore.
I don't want a folksy beer-drinking buddy in the White House - I want a smart president who can govern. Gore was that kind of guy. Gore had the brains and loads of experience - having served in the House, Senate, and 8 years as VP.
i will always hate gore for his actions in the 2000 election
destroyed the country
Actually, they tanked before the election... but I know you need to hold the Republicans blameless for everything.
