What happened? For one thing there's been a dramatic change in the nature of what the philosopher Jürgen Habermas has described as the structure of the public forum--the way our political discourse takes place. It no longer operates as it once did. It is simply no longer as accessible to the vigorous and free exchange of ideas from individuals in the way those ideas were freely and vigorously exchanged during the period of our founding.
What happened? The internet. Now Gore's "authentic voice" can be vetted by the people, by themselves, and dissected to show his flip-flops and hypocrisy, foremostly about Iraq.
