Reader emails ...

I had an interesting email from one of my local customers (who's a Democrat) asking:

What do you think about Al Gore being drafted as President?


I don't think about it honestly. Look ... I don't care how he lost the election in 2000. If he couldn't beat as weak a candidate as George Bush by a landslide ... there's your answer. I doubt he would be any stronger against the stronger Republican candidates this go around.

Think of Gore being drafted as president? Are you kidding? No thanks, I really rather not think about it, but then again, being close to Apple Inc..... hmmmmm?

Hard to beat an opponent who fixed the results?

Roget ... you don't believe that do you?

Look, I'm not a big George Bush fan, but I think Al Gore would have been about as effective as Jimmy Carter.

I'm no fan of Gore - I'm less of a fan of the Bush dynasty.

Was there, or was there not, some issue with the results for Florida?

There were issues but I honestly think both sides tried to cheat in Florida. If you remeber they tried to toss out 1200 votes because of hanging chads (poorly punched cards). Like I said, it really doesn't matter to me - he lost. No matter if it were fixed or not, he didn't have enough votes to win by a large margin any way.

Hmm...I'm British and frankly I think Gore's the only person you guys should be letting run your contry. Maybe Hilary or Obama if they can show some guts. But definitely not another Republican. You guys have some bridges to medn with...Well...Everyone, actually. Speaking internationally, if you think Bush is a joke in the US, you should hear the likes of the British. He's routinely torn apart and unfortunately the US's reputation has plummeted as a result of hime getting elected and the things he''s done since then.

Incidentally, this might be just someone giving me the wrong ifnromation, but I was told Gore won the Popular vote. I know that the American system is jacked and ignores the popular vote, but it does rather prove the point that the American people wanted Gore, not Bush.
