  •  A Different World Had Gore (0+ / 0-)

    allowed Clinton to campaign for him in crucial states like Ohio and Florida.

      60-70%, in 1999 and 2000 due to his sordid affair and the aftermath. He was the Weiner of the 2000 election.

        guide an entire POTUS election?

        Bottom line: Clinton won two elections, in spite of the fact plenty of people hated him and voted against him.

        Gore lost-- partly because he's not Clinton, because he didn't allow Clinton to campaign for him, and for numerous other reasons.
