    Your 12% deficit just doesn't make sense.

    1.  It's one poll, not an average of dozens.
    2.  Not many people knew who Bush was in January 1998.  Had he even announced yet?
    3.  You ignore the fact that Gore's ratings were at least in large part a function of Gore himself, not just Clinton.  The American people had known Gore for a long time as a very visable VP who had already run three national campaigns.
    4.  Gore made several mistakes (re Clinton, Tenn, not running on Peace and Prosperity, poor team, etc).

    Everybody talks about John Edwards' energy, intellect and charisma -- Bill Clinton
