Tough speech by Gore, with just a few “I told you so’s” at the beginning. And the Obama campaign has to be happy about that passage comparing Lincoln’s wisdom and relative lack of experience with Obama’s. You have to wonder how hard it is for Gore to make that argument, having spent much of the 2000 campaign comparing his decades in public office, including eight years as vice president, with the five years his opponent had as a politician. The experience charge was such a key part of Gore’s case that he was asked about it in the first question of the first presidential debate.
