We don't really have much to worry about. Democrats outnumber Republicans by a wide margin in this country. We have a two term President ending his term with a high approval rating, always a help to his party's nominee. The Democrats have a thoughtful, successful and competent candidate with an impeccable resume. The Republicans have an untested, unproven and highly questionable candidate with little more than name recognition going for him. Democrats and thoughtful Independents should not panic, everything points to a happy election result this coming fall.
It's a cinch. Al Gore will easily beat George W. Bush.
While past results do not guarantee future results, we know that what's past is prologue.
Cue the scary music.
