34. absolutely

I remember the 90s and the 99 elections well.

There absolutely was an apathy because things were going well.

And, republicans were nearly the same arsehats then that they are now, and the country was just fed up hearing them scream about their nonsense. Bush, to those who were not really paying attention seemed dumber than post, but harmless, and as much to shut up Republicans as anything, people voted for the "guy you would like to have a beer with!"

I do wonder, if 9-11 had happened with Gore as President, and it very well could have even if he did not blow off the threat like Bush did, it might have been the end on of the democratic party. Yes, the used it to their inverse advantage at the time, but if that had happened with a democratic president, it would FOREVER have given them justification to say you can't trust democrats.
