How we got the "compassionate conservative"

Or at least one reason. A compelling examination of the press coverage of Bush and Gore.

I remember reading that when it came out and just grinding my teeth throug the whole thing. The benefit of hindsight in this case is nothing but a curse. Oh what might have been.

But the good news, for Gore anyway, is that he came through it with flying colors. He's been paid some heavy honors globally for all his work, and sometimes I wonder if some of the adulation is for Gore-as-alternate-
universe-president. Maybe in some ways the world is paying its respects to our better lights, rather than our worse ones.
