  •  Gore had principles, I think (none)
    Although it was kind of hard to tell in 2000, mostly because of who he surrounded himself with.  At the time, a ticket with Lieberman as VP and Tipper Gore as the first lady was looking mighty bad for civil liberties—both have led major "won't someone please think of the children and ban movies and music I find offensive" initiatives.  Hopefully if Gore ever reenters politics, as he seems to be making noises about, he won't cozy up to Lieberman (and hopefully his wife doesn't have any influence on his policies).

    •  Yup, civil liberties are sure a lot better (none)
      without Gore as president.

      All decisions have consequences. You are responsible for the foreseeable consequences of all your decisions. Even voting.

      •  sure (none)
        In 2000, it looked like Bush and Gore were both bad.  They turned out not to be equally bad, but not all eventualities are predictable.  Based on past experience, there have been fuck-ups from both parties: Kennedy and Johnson were responsible for the giant Vietnam mess, for example.

        •  That's a lie (none)
          Sorry, but Bush and Gore did not "look like" they were equally bad; you made the decision to treat them as if they were equally bad, and you were wrong.  Other people tried to tell you so, and they were right.  

          That was your privilege then, but you have to own your decision and its consequences now.  Don't be a coward and retreat into the same self-justifying rewrite of history indulged in by those neocons who are now claiming it "looked like" Saddam had WMDs, and "everybody thought he did".  

          Everybody didn't think Saddam had WMDs, and Bush and Gore didn't both look bad.

        •  Yup, Nixon in 1960 would have been (none)
          much than Kennedy. And, of course, Goldwater would have been way better than Johnson.

          Gee seems like ignorance really works great, doesn't it? Really no clue about politics, eh?

          •  murder versus murder is hardly a choice (none)
            Sure, Goldwater may have been a bad choice, but at least a libertarian like Goldwater is better than a neocon murderer like Kennedy who killed over 4 million Vietnamese and 1 million Americans with his bone-headed foreign expedition.
