Why should I give Al Gore or John Kerry a second look??
Advertisements [?]
Frankly, I don't see much difference between Gore in 2000 and now, or John Kerry in 2004 and now. I voted for both, but why should I take them over Hillary, Mark Warner, Evan Bayh, Russ Feingold,(if he runs), Wes Clark, or any other possible Democratic presidential candidate?? Please explain without the verbal abuse and four letter name calling.
