Gore vs. Hillary
Townhall.com ^ | Mar 18, 2006 | Robert Novak

Posted on 03/18/2006 11:37:47 AM PST by Milhous

WASHINGTON -- Democratic insiders take seriously a possible new try for the presidency by Al Gore and say he is capable of raising more money than the presumptive front-runner, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton.
 
Clinton's team has attempted to foreclose conventional Democratic money sources, drying up funding for her potential presidential rivals. She has $17.1 million cash on hand, more than any other possible candidate. Her current fund-raising tour is aimed at an additional $40 million.

 However, party operatives believe former Vice President Gore can outdo Clinton through unconventional fund-raising on the Internet. By campaigning left of Clinton, Gore appeals to ardent anti-war Democrats. Gore's first presidential run in 1988 positioned him as the centrist candidate, to the right of eventual nominee Michael Dukakis.

Gore vs. Hillary would split the PLA vote. Who is a Communist Chinese agent to support?

"Left and lefter."

Sounds win/win for Republicans - Either Gore pulls Hillary left and she gstill wins or Gore runs left and wins. Either way Hillary's "centrist" position is blown.

By campaigning left of Clinton, Gore appeals to ardent anti-war Democrats.
My concern is that Hillary uses Gore to make herself look moderate by comparision rather than running to the left to outflank Gore. If she comes out of the primaries looking 'mainstream' due to spin, the GOP is going to have a heck of a time painting her with 'old news' of Hillarycare, stock deals, Whitewater, etc.

If the Republicans had a solid candidate....I would just be loving the prospect of the Dem primaries with Hillary, Kerry, Gore fighting it out...

BUT, I am not so sure that OURS will be much less "interesting".

Well if the Republicans/Conservatives do not eat their own between now and 2008, it just might be fun to watch an out and out liberal show.

Wonder who has the winner scream, maybe we could have a contest like they have for the 'pig' callers.

Agreed, Killery is at least rational and evil.
Gore is irrational and evil and bitter.

I really do not think Hillery is going to run and would lose if she did. Bill is a very large albatross around her neck

Ooooooh.

Watch out for the Gore/Clinton ticket.

They're too smart to let HER give too many speeches.

This could actually be brilliant "strategery" on the part of the Dems to make Hitlary appear more "main stream" and not as "leftist" as she really is.
Remember, hubby Slick Willie ran as a "centrist" democrat to win in 92. (With help from Ross Perot and the ship of fools who voted for him.)

Notice that people like Cindy Shame-ham and Susan Serran-wrap have recently been "bashing" Hitlary for her "moderate" position on the war.

Let's not be fooled, if Hitlary gets the nomination, she WILL have the support of the far left, regardless of how she campaigns. Who are they going to vote for, a republican?

The problem with many of us conservatives is that we tend to "stay home" more if our candidate isn't as "conservative" as we'd like. The dems know this and will try to use it to take congress back in 2006 and the White House in 08.

Be afraid, be very afraid!

Wrongo, Milhouse.

Al Gore has been given a job to do: make Hillary look like a center-right Democrat. He's perfect for the job.

"Al Gore and say he is capable of raising more money than the presumptive front runner."

I guess that's supposed to be a reason to vote for him?

"Bill is a very large albatross around her neck."

My theory as well. His ego will never allow her to be President. Besides, they're even by now, so no holds barred. ;)

He's had all the Bimbos an old, ill, bent geezer can consume by now, and in turn she's smacked him upside the head with all the White House ash trays, lamps and crockery one woman can lay her hands on, LOL!

What a pathetic pair. Custom-made for a Jerry Springer show. And they were POTUS, First Lady and now a Senator with Slick aiming for head of the UN and a Nobel Peace Prize? Good God.

Now, add John Effin' Kerry to this witch's brew. He'll try to run a straddle...covering up both flanks.
