    The fact that Al Gore spent 8 years as Vice President knowing he would want to run for President one day and he didn't make any moves on the public funding of campaigns.

    We don't have to have all this money drowning our political process, maybe someone who was the Vice President standing up and saying we need public funding would really go a long way to change things, but Gore did the safe thing and raised his millions and millions from the same corpo K Street crowd that Clinton used and then tried to run as a populist, it was fake, so then he tried triangulating and that didn't work either, so then he tried changing his look and that didn't work either. If Gore had taken a real stand against the money that is corrupting our political system he would have won the 2000 election in a walk.

    absolute freedom for one individual undoubtedly limits the freedom of another.
