Mostly rational politics, with occasional rants about how a few crazy Republicans are ruining the country.

Absolutely Not! Of Course! Maybe!
This new CNN poll about who voters would "definitely not vote for" or "definitely vote for" produced some interesting results.
Surprisingly, Al Gore gets a higher (by 1%) "definitely not" number than Hillary and Kerry - 48% Gore vs. 47% Clinton and Kerry. Are there really that many people who were as put off by Gore in 2000 as Kerry in 2004? Don't these people watch movies or Saturday Night Live?
And despite Hillary's high "no" vote, she also scored highest on the "definitely vote for" side, with 22%.
I wonder how much stock people like Gore (who are deciding whether to run) put in polls like this. Try as he might, his new message still hasn't gotten out that widely. But perhaps that will change in a few months.
