adviser who has a huge axe to grind against his former bosses. I
don't regard him as a credible political pundit because of comments
"Al Gore would have run the war on terror like he ran his project
to 're-invent government' -- with a prosaic but competent absence of
drama and imagination."
What kind of idiot would rather have a dramatic president than a
competent one? Additionally, Morris' suggestion that the country
needs a "big war" to support, in order to continue fighting
terrorism, is dangerous and misguided.
As for Gore, the biggest reason he's losing a poll of this kind is
because he's not the president. Reverse the situation, and we're all
thanking our lucky stars Bush isn't in the office.
