It is never going to happen.
Watching Al Gore on live TV in Nov-Dec 2000, in horrified fascination and relief about what might have been (but wasn't), turned more people into Republicans or independents (and committed voters) than the RNC has done with millions in donations.
It should have been a slam-dunk for Ali Ghor al-Ooudi. "The greatest economy in the history of the world", no Soviet threat, terror not an issue yet, running with the endorsement a popular President (though I think the MSM cooked the polling books visa vis Clinton), local Democrat machines free to stuff ballot boxes at will, MSM backing, etc. He should have won by at least 350 electoral votes. Ali Ghor lost because he comes across as an elitist, wooden, tree-hugging nutcase, plain and simple. The people of the U.S. sized him up and found him wanting.
