And yes, Bush was the better candidate. And the better man. Gore was given the country on a silver platter - best economy in eons, peace, etc - and he blew it. Plus he was running purely to achieve power, because he thinks it's his destiny to be president, and was willing to adopt and then throw away every stand on ever issue as the winds of public opinion changed. You may not like Bush's polices, but at least he has some.posted by aaron at 9:26 PM on December 14, 2000
I agree on that. He was a screwup for a long time. But that's okay with me, as long as he's had it together for 15 years now. I don't want damn someone forever for the mistakes of the past.
but how you can find Bush "the better man" is a mystery to me.
Gore creeps me the hell out, that's why. I honestly do believe he's just in this game to be president, to have power. I honestly believe he's a guy who will flip-flop on almost any issue if it will give him a political advantage. That sort of raw lust for power, seemingly unbacked by any real convictions of his own, makes me think he was the lesser man. And I've thought this for years, not just in this campaign.posted by aaron at 11:06 PM on December 14, 2000
