A timely reminder of Gore's words reKerry on environment.
I want to say to all Americans this evening that whether its the threat to the
global environment or the erosion of Americas leadership in the world, whether it
is the challenge to our economy from new competitors or the challenge to our
security from new enemies, I believe we need new leadership that is both strong
and wise. And we can have new leadership, because one of our greatest strengths
as a democracy is that when were headed in the wrong direction, we can correct
our course. When policies are clearly not working, we, the people, can change
them. If our leaders make mistakes, we can hold them accountable: even if they
never admit their mistakes. I firmly believe America needs new leadership that will
make us stronger at home and respected in the world.

And were here this week to present to the nation the man who should be and will be
our new president: John Kerry. John and I were elected to the United States Senate
on the same day 20 years ago and I have worked closely with him for all that time.
So I want to say a personal word about John Kerry the man. He is a friend who will
stand by you. His word is his bond. He has a deep patriotism that goes far beyond
words. He has devoted his life to making America a better place for all of us.

He showed uncommon heroism on the battlefield in Vietnam. I watched him show
that same courage on the Senate floor. For example, he had the best record of
protecting the environment against polluters of any of my colleagues bar none.
He never shied away from a fight, no matter how powerful the foe. He was never
afraid to take on difficult and thankless issues that few others wanted to touch.
like exposing the threat of narcoterrorism and tracing the sources of terrorist
financing. He was one of the very first in our party to take on the issue of drastic
deficit reduction. And hes developed a tough and thoughtful plan to restore our
economic strength and fiscal discipline.

To put it simply, those of us who have worked with John know that he has the
courage, integrity and leadership to be a truly great president of the United States
of America. >>>>>>
