Awards U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Dick Gephardt a "D" in intellectual honesty for decrying the 1993 passage of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), by claiming it had not been properly debated. Claim that there was a long national debate on NAFTA prior to its passage, including a televised debate on the issue between Al Gore and Ross Perot; Call upon Gephardt to critique NAFTA on its merits, rather than rewrite history.
