I saw him once and he was an excellent speaker.

Only idiots boo him for "costing" Gore. Gore could not win his own state; his supporters have no basis on which to blame Nader. Had Gore won Tennessee, what Nader did or did not do in Florida would have been immaterial. What a lame, lame argument.

And that's not to say I would vote for Nader. I think he's a good activist and a bad politician. But he is a good speaker - he doesn't talk in soundbytes and sounds nothing like a politician. It was a breath of fresh air, to be honest. But then again I find political rallies vomit-inducing.

well. . uh, is it okay, if I only drink it sometimes?

Is that really true? Assasinating, torturing. . .you make them sound like the Bush Admin! Why would they need to do that? They already own the world, practically. At least in terms of soft drink market share. . .

I guess I should just stick to Green Tea with Honey. . .made by the Chinese for the Chinese.

i've no idea, they can't justify that. but i think it has something to do with the crap working conditions. and whenever somebody tries to form a union, or is suspected of such, they stop them short.

(Not that I ever did in the first place. . . .gosh, I'm so off topic. . .)

nobody hot says that! being hot isn't just about looks, it's about the light that shines though when you talk about sexy things like workers' rights.

You're right, Gore couldn't win his own home state. He was a lousy campaigner who had trouble winning elections, by his own admission.

Is he any better at these things now?

Cuz a lot of Dems are saying that if he chose to step into the race he'd be the automatic front runner. Which seems ridiculous if he's a "lousy campaigner who had trouble winning elections."

Gore has established himself outside of Clinton's shadow over the last 7 years, it could get interesting if he stepped into the race.
