55. I love Al and I am hoping to hear new insights from him on this:
I don't want him to be a hawk - we need anti-hawks. A BIG part of what we need to do to become a truthful, sane nation is to tell the truth about our nation's use of military to dominate -- over 250 military and CIA interventions since World War II & over 700 military bases now...

From the CNN story you linked to........

'Hawk' on foreign policy issues

The Democrat went to some lengths, however, to emphasize his credentials as a "hawk" on foreign policy issues, especially Iraq. He noted that he was "one of the few Democrats in the Senate" in 1991 who crossed party lines and supported the war resolution introduced by the current president's father.

Gore is well aware of the political pitfalls of openly questioning military action. His own father, the late Sen. Albert Gore of Tennessee, a vocal critic of the Vietnam War, lost his re-election bid in 1970, largely because of his position on the war.
