but as Rick can't help but point out:

Americans almost equally didn't "trust" Gore.  And, less we forget, Clinton
polled for most of his Presidency as not being on the right track.  And,
twas many a year ago that Bush 1 ran the CIA.

"In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports show that
Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological weapons
stock, his missile delivery capability, and his nuclear program.  He has
also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including al Qaeda
members.  It is clear, however, that if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will
continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare,
and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons."
