In November of 1992, Al Gore wa elected as the 45th Vice-President of the United States. In 1993, Gore casted the deciding vote for the administration’s 1993 economic plan. In November of 1996, Gore is reelected as 46th Vice-President of the United States. In August of 1997 the Clinton-Gore administration signs the first balanced budget in a generation. Gore spoke at the Columbine High School memorial service calling for stricter gun control and support for the families of the victims.

He certainly stands with an impressive amount of accomplishments and experience as a politician in the United States. Joseph Lieberman was born in Stamford, Connecticut on February 24, 1942 and attended public schools there. He received his bachelor’s degree from Yale College in 1964 and his law degree from Yale Law School in 1967. Lieberman was elected to the Connecticut State Senate in 1970 and served there for 10 years, including the last 6 as Majority Leader. He also spent time in the private practice of law, and as an Assistant Dean of the School of Art and Architecture at Yale. From 1982 to 1988, Joe Lieberman served as Connecticut’s 21st Attorney General, and used the post to fight for consumers in Connecticut.

He took on the oil industry and brought legal actions to promote women’s rights. Lieberman also was an aggressive enforcer of the state’s environmental protection laws. In 1988, Lieberman won the biggest upset victory in the country, by beating incumbent Lowell Weicker to win election to the U.S. Senate by just 10,000 votes. Six years later, he made history by winning the biggest landslide victory ever in a Connecticut race for a Senate seat, with a margin of more than 67% of the vote.

Now in his second term in the U. S. Senate, Joe Lieberman has earned a national reputation as a thoughtful, effective legislator. He is a Democrat who speaks his conscience, forms bipartisan coalitions with Republicans, and fight for working families. He has fought for consumers, for a better environment for present and future generations, and for a strong national defense in his service in the Senate, and on the Armed Services, Environment and Public Works, Governmental Affairs, and Small Business Committees.

Governor George W.Bush, the son of President George Bush started this campaign as a frontrunner selected by political commentators who gave him the most media of any 2000 GOP hopeful. Since then, Bush has taken a series of calculated steps to solidify that position. His landslide re-election victory in a large state and significant numbers of Hispanic supporters gave his frontrunner status credibility on the surface. Behind the scenes, Bush used knowledge from his father’s campaigns to develop a wide range of contacts and a solid fundraising network. At the same time Bush enjoys the benefits of his father’s name id, his campaign borrows a line from the Oldsmobile commercials and promises this is not your father’s campaign..

instead it is a younger, more conservative group that’s ready for the next century. When Bush broke all records and raised $37 million by June 1999, he effectively won the 2000 GOP money race. No other Republican challenger was able to match him in fundraising. And his money shows Republicans are putting their money where their collective mouth has been. Bush has been criticized for making mistakes when naming foreign countries and heads of state and is building a foreign policy agenda around interaction with Russia and China as major powers in the next century.

After winning the primaries, despite a strong challenge from John McCain, Bush worked to solidify his Republican base and build from it to reach independent voters. His selection of Dick Cheney as a running mate in July helped Bush keep his conservative base while addressing concerns that the party shows a compassionate face. Richard B. Cheney, widely credited with helping mastermind the U.S.-led military victory over Iraq, by reputation is deliberate but decisive, a Washington insider who honed his skills of persuasion both in Congress and the executive branch. Out of sight for most of the past decade, the 59-year-old Cheney is very much back in the public eye as Texas Gov.

George W. Bush’s choice as vice presidential running mate. The face is rounder now than when Cheney, former President Bush’s defense secretary, was on the world’s TV screens during his prosecution of the Persian Gulf War. But he still has that seemingly permanent half-smile, a friendly look that comes with a disarming manner that helped him get along with Democrats even while amassing a deeply conservative voting record on Capitol Hill. In April, when George W.

Bush put Cheney in charge of his vice presidential search team, Bush called him “a man of enormous experience.” The highlight of Cheney’s four years as Pentagon chief, from 1989 to 1993, was the resounding victory in the Persian Gulf War. During that time he also oversaw the Pentagon’s first big wave of post-Cold War defense cuts — and characteristically cautioned Congress against cutting too deeply, too rapidly. In November 1991, several months after the Gulf War ended, Cheney publicly worried about the future of the Soviet Union — which dissolved one month later — and foresaw an instability that continues today. Cheney was born in Lincoln, Neb., and his father was a longtime Agriculture Department worker. He attended elementary school and high school in Casper, Wyo. He was football co-captain and senior class president, and won a full scholarship to Yale — Bush’s alma mater.

He attended Yale for one year but had to leave because of failing grades. He moved back to Wyoming where he worked for the power company stringing and cutting lines, before enrolling at the University of Wyoming, where he renewed a relationship with high school sweetheart Lynne Anne Vincent. They married in 1964 and both went to the University of Wisconsin for doctorates. She earned her doctoral degree, but politics lured him to Washington in 1968, where he was a congressional fellow and became a protege of Michigan Republican Rep. Donald Rumsfeld, a close friend of President Gerald Ford. Cheney served under Rumsfeld in the anti-poverty agency of the Nixon years, on the Nixon White House staff and under Rumsfeld again as assistant director of the Cost of Living Council, Nixon’s agency to combat inflation.

When Ford tapped Rumsfeld to become his chief o …
