OK, let me handle this up front. After having supported Al Gore, Jr. for Vice President twice as well as in his campaigns for the House and Senate in Tennessee, I voted for Ralph Nader in the presidential election of 2000. Like a number of my friends, I was fed up with business as usual in Washington and, frankly, didn't see a lot of difference between Gore and Bush. In my mind they were both privileged sons of politicians who believed it was their divine right to ascend to the presidency.
