Gore withdrew gracefully?
If that is not the most insane statement I have seen since the 2000 election, I don't know what is.
In my opinion he hasn't withdrawn yet.
We had better start handicapping the Republican race, this mess will be too engrossing and we might end up with a Harriet Meyers candidate if we don't pay attention.
Nixon withdrew immediately and refused to challenge the results in Illinois. Gore tried to have the rules for counting votes changed in order to alter the results of the election in Florida.
Of course, there is also a lot of similarity in the way Nixon went to North Vietnam and Russia and Washington and denounced the US position in the Vietnam war the way Gore did in Saudi Arabia, and accused our soldiers of war crimes. Oh, wait, that wasn't Nixon. That was Jane Fonda in Vietnam, and that was bill clinton in Russia, and it was John Fonda Kerry that lied to the Congress about imaginary war crimes. Nixon didn't do those things after all.
I'm also waiting for Samuel Tilden to make a comeback from the 1876 election.
This reads like a college term paper - many forced comparisons.
Nixon's expertise in foreign policy and overall intelligence overcame his lack of the "political charisma" of, say, a Ronald Reagan. Gore does not appear to have any assets to overcome his "politics as a second language" personna. I don't think the environmental angle will do it. but it would be fun to watch Kerry, Gore and Clinton duke it out in primaries.
So told in a NY speech on a day with heavy snow & 4 degree weather.
WHAT A TOOL
"Gore withdrew gracefully? "
Gore doesn't do anything gracefully.
Somebody needs to look up the definition of the word "gracefully."
Why do people try to rewrite History. We all saw Al Gore kicking and Screamning right down to the last. He is still whining and moaning. Even his daughter is still whining.
No one has seen poor Tipper since the election, have they put her away somewhere?
I could care less what Dick Morris has to say.
He wrote speeches for Bubba.
He doesn't appear to hold any regard for facts or history.
I don't understand why so many conservative radio hosts have him on their show as a guest.
The comparison between how they conceded is pure BS.
