Al Gore’s departure from the 2004 presidential campaign seems to have hit the Democrats hard. That might explain a recent Gallup poll of election support showing Sen. Joe Lieberman with 25% and Sen. John Kerry with 21%. But if Sen. Hillary Clinton were to run she would start with 40%, and Lieberman and Kerry would drop off the map.
Someday we will elect a woman or an African-American as president. I hope to see it in my lifetime. I suspect this person will be a Republican, not a Democrat.
