    though I thought at the time that Lieberman's sanctimoniousness and prigishness were insufferable.

    The real point is this: while Gore apparently thought that the argument to choose Lieberman was convincing, and I think mostly because he was feeling defensive about being associated with Clinton, I don't believe that Gore today would allow such defensiveness to have such an important role in his decision making.  I think his sense of urgency would be the dominant factor, which is why he now presents himself with so much more self-confidence and creativity.  He's a much stronger public figure today, both shielding him from attacks and making him respond to them better.

    It's not just media perception, or hindsight.
