Gore is the kind of man who is willing to win at any price. He is exactly
the kind of man we don't need as president. After losing in three vote
tallies and the Supreme Court, Gore is still scurrying around for a fifth
attempt at becoming president through whatever legal ruse necessary. This
is a level of arrogance fit for those who fancy themselves Royal Pretenders
to the thrones of Romania or Albania. Not in America, pal.
I am not at all complaining about having ringside seats to the spectacle
of a sitting Vice President making a fool of himself. The longer he drags
this out, the easier it will be for Bush to gain legitimacy and get on
with the business of America. To an America that loves entertainment, Gore
has offered a comic spectacle that will be minted into seven or eight screen
plays, some with sequels. Thanks, Al. Bye
Many Americans believe the Lewinsky affair ranked as more adult entertainment.
But when you consider that Al Gore was the lead man in this adolescent
comic tragedy, this stuff is solid pulp fiction.
At his point, Al Gore should not only concede the Presidency, he should
also resign as Vice President. Its only a couple of months. But thats
way too long. At the very minimum he should take a long vacation and not
bother to show up for the inaugaration.
This is a man who stands accused of breaking existing campaign finance
laws. His campaign turned a blind eye to "vote exchanging" schemes that
were an overt attempts to manipulate the Electoral College vote. Besides,
he is as responsible as any American politician for the corruption of our
money infested political process. Thanks to Al and his cronies, three billion-dollar
campaigns have already made a mockery of each and every election in America.
Indeed, no one should forget that Al "the solicitor" Gore became the Democratic
Party candidate on the merits of his political purse.
At this stage of the game, Gore can choose to inflict a little retribution
against the Democratic Party for not backing him all the way. He can blame
Nader for this self-inflicted humiliation. Whatever he does, he had better
accept Bush as his President and then find a hole to crawl into.
