23. Gore is a fighter !!!
jus_the_facts said "And he refused to allow the Black Caucus to FIGHT the voter fraud...."

This is really a misrepresentation of Gore's position in 2000. Gore fought hard for as long as there was a chance of getting more votes counted in Florida and changing the official result in Florida. Right up until the SCOTUS shut-down the recount. Then he took the position that he had to respect the Constitution and accept the SCOTUS decision - while at the same time he was very open in telling America that he "strongly disagree"d with that decision. Gore lived to fight another day.

If you are saying he should have kept fighting even when there was zero possibility of changing the outcome - then I am sorry to say that I don't agree with you. As painful as it was - I think Gore took the correct decision at the time.

In Gore We Trust :)
