Far, far better.
Better, only because the Republicans in Congress would have kept in on a tight leash. I seriously doubt we would have gone to war with Iraq which would have saved thousands of American (military) lives and the trillions for America. And he wouldn't have been able to pass his wacko marxist/socialist crap because of Congress.
We never would have ended up in Iraq if Gore had won.
Republican Congress and Democratic President was a pretty solid combination from 1994 to 2000, it would have stayed solid to 2008. Once the GOP got full control, House, Senate, and POTUS, they went hog wild on spending and betrayed their principles.
If Gore had won, he probably wouldn't have been able to enact much of his agenda under a Republican Congress meaning you can cast aside concerns that Gore would have embraced Cap and Trade. A Gore win would have meant greater continuity of government between Clinton to Gore than we saw from Clinton to Bush, meaning you might have had a (slightly) better chance at stopping 9/11.
Even if Gore didn't stop 9/11 (which is likely), chances are good we wouldn't have gone on to Iraq, meaning we'd have still had enough political clout to potentially stop North Korea and Iran. Iraq left us isolated and left the door open to nuclear aspirations from both countries.
Gore would have continued Clinton's "police" policy with regard to terrorism and we would be having terrorist attacks every Mon and Thurs. He woudl push through "stimulus" measures in response to the recession, costing us huge amounts of money over time. We would be facing both Iraq and Iran armed with nuclear and biological weapons.
He would have been a disaster, possibly worse than Obama.
Worse in reaction to 9/11 and worse on national security overall... Leftist economic policies after 9/11 would have put us in a worse place after that severe downturn and recession would have hit sooner with a deeper gash... environmental focus would have hurt business and our standing as a country in business and industry
Better. Reasons have already been stated here.
how did you come to this opinion?
Better - no Iraq foul up. No alienation of the world community.
