ABSTRACT
Claims that the text of speech by U.S. Vice President Al Gore intended for a gathering at the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco, California has almost perfectly encapsulated the evasions that have characterized the Democratic Party's response to U.S. President George W. Bush's proposed war in Iraq. Argument that war in Iraq would undermine U.S. mission to fighting terrorism; Doubt raised by Gore on the timing of Bush in persuading U.S. Congress to vote on the war; Criticism against Gore's critique of the government's preparations for war without sufficient regard to international opinion.
