Voting for Gore
November 7, 2000

Because of Bush's generalized promises and his likability, a number of individuals unfortunately take his debate language as gospel. But for me, this election is not about likability it is about who has the experience in national government and international affairs. It is about who is competent and will support policies that make best use of our prosperity. It is about who is Pro-Choice and who is not a gay and lesbian basher and therefore GORE is MY candidate and the one for whom I will cast my vote.
