15. Don't hate the truth ...

That's an apt comparison.

I remember it well. And I was floored by all the people who threw out Al Gore as the supposed savior of the Democratic party in 2008, people who desperately wanted him to run, some even who declared they would support no one else but him because he was a "true" Democrat, a "true" liberal. Those same people were either not active politically in 2000 or were hypocrites.

I suggested once during the primaries, in one of those "draft Al Gore" threads, that the people pushing this had no idea who Al Gore was. I was, predictably, thrashed, called a moron, a traitor, etc.

Al Gore is far more conservative than Obama is. Don't tell certain people that, however. You'll cause aneurysms.
