ABSTRACT
The article focuses on American politics. Al Gore's endorsement of Howard Dean reflects his dismaying ideological evolution since George W. Bush took office. In speeches about Iraq and civil liberties, Al Gore has embraced a critique of the president more in sync with his party's left wing than with his own history. It's not surprising that Gore would find Dean's militant anti-Bushism attractive. After all, Gore was savaged in 2000 not only by the failure of the electoral system but also by the news media, which failed to recognize Bush's radicalism despite Gore's prompting. Soon after the passage of the Medicare bill, GOP Representative Nick Smith of Michigan, who did not support the legislation, reported that someone had promised him that a yea vote would result in substantial campaign contributions to his son Brad, a candidate for the House of Representatives. This offer clearly meets the federal definition of bribery. Given his standing in the polls, it may not matter who John Kerry would appoint as his special envoy to the Middle East were he president.
