In the spirit of Debate time, THE NOD -Bush/Gore Dingle-Norwood
Free Republic ^

The Nod.

Perhaps THE turning point in the campaign came at the 9 minute and 45 second mark of Debate Number 3. In what I believe was a calculated attempt to intimidate Bush, Gore walks up to Bush, sticks his hand in his pocket, gets even closer... Bush is in the middle of giving a good response on HMOs, sees Gore, nods, and then ignores him and proceeds with his statement. The audience laughs.

IT DIDN'T WORK! Gore knew it. Look at his reaction as he realizes that Naomi Wolf's latest "Alpha Male" ploy didn't work, as he was looking straight into the eye of a REAL Alpha Male... one who doesn't need to be coached on how to be a man. All he could muster was a "What about the Dingell-Norwood Bill?" What about it, Algore? I think this may be THE defining moment of the campaign where for the first time in 8 years, a Republican didn't back down in the face of Clinton-Gore bullying. Oh my, how sweet it is....

To save you a lot of time, this precious moment is at the 9 minute and 45 second mark of the debate. Just click on the link, and tune your Real Player to the 9:45 mark... Enjoy. Play it over and over. Hopefully a Freeper smarter than I can edit this clip and turn it into a loop...

"THE NOD"

I remember that thing Gore did. My wife, who is much smarter than I, said he was trying to intimidate Bush. Macho Gore was an oxymoron. I thought it was a bit of comic relief.
