Just a little note about Al Gore, I have never met the man, but I
have a close and honest relative who went to College with the man at
Harvard. From what I hear, Al Gore is exceptionally honest, hard working
and intelligent. He may not be much fun at parties, but he is supposed
to be a real good guy. My feelings are that Clinton put Al in the
position he is in now, and if it weren't for that, Al's record would be
frightens me because he puts security for mental midgets above freedom
of speech - something I am sure most people here value quite a bit. If
Al would lay off of the encryption - censorship stuff, I would vote for
him in a second.
