Description

The Washington Post Magazine reports that in the sprint for campaign cash, he's got the best staff, the most experience and a tested game plan. More than any other presidential campaign in modern times, the 2000 race is about money - raising a lot of it and raising it fast and raising it without getting caught in the tangled web of rules and regulations that govern the process. But Gore's greatest strength could also prove to be his greatest vulnerability. His Buddhist temple visit, his 52 solicitation calls from the White House and his clumsy "no controlling legal authority" public defense were among the lowlights of the raucous 1996 campaign and its aftermath. Presidential hopefuls such as Democratic Bill Bradley and Republican John McCain are already seeking to portray the vice president as just another sleazy, business-as-usual politician, hat in hand.
