Kurt Andersen on Al Gore's Imagined Presidency

Kurt Andersen on Al Gore's Imagined Presidency - What If the 2000 Presidential Election Had Gone the Other Way? -- New York Magazine:

As they walked upstairs, Lieberman gripped Gore’s arm. “Mr. President, bravo. This is why we voted for the Gulf War in ’91. This is the next step in making good on our promises to the American people.” As a candidate, Gore had repeatedly professed his “strong commitment to removing Saddam Hussein from power.” The president smiled at his excited little vice-president, whom he had not yet begun referring to as “Joe Leave-Me-Alone.”
Alternate history continued by other writers including none other than Glenn Beck. Very strange.
