Taking Control?

Al Gore has begun a campaign to take center stage of the democrat party. Gore is gambling that his latest statements opposing Bush's Iraq policy can make him the center of conversation for a while. By contradicting the recent moves by his party leadership to avoid any argument with the GOP about war until the election Gore hopes to appear to be leading the Donks. If he is successful, his unerring political sense will have catapulted him to the forefront of an even more moribund Democrat party.

Isn't it amazing that these men, who contend for great power, don't even seem to feel the need to pretend to have deep feelings and beliefs on the great issues of the time? Gore has been on every side of this debate, and now feels that the time is right to turn against his previous stand on this issue. He clearly believes that the American electorate is too stupid to check, or care, about the facts.
