Al Gore and Bob Dole Debate at SMU Tonight

By Byron LaMasters

This ought to be interesting:

Title: TATE Lecture - Gergen Panel Discussion Date: 2004 Sep 28 Time: 8:00 PM - 9:30 PM Calendar: McFarlin Events Calendar Contact: David Scannell Categories: Lectures Description: A Panel discussion with Bob Dole and Al Gore moderated by David Gergen Tele. #: 214-768-8283 Building & Address: McFarlin Auditorium - 6405 Boaz Ln.

I'm not sure if it's just for students, or open to the public, but if I were in Dallas, I'd just call the above number and find out. Show Al G. some love tonight...

Wish I had read this earlier. Just called and they said it was "sold out".

Yeah. Algore is a sell-out. A sell out to the communists and freaks of the world.

What a maroon.

Um, do you mean, 'moron', or are you insinuating he is red in some way? Either way, you are *quite* mistaken and obviously know nothing about the man.

I was there because I get free tickets as part of my scholarship at SMU. The debate, if you could call it that, was broadcasted on CSPAN. It was pretty enjoyable and both Senator Dole and VP Gore were entertaining and informative. Although, it was clear that Al Gore has a much better grasp of policy then Bob Dole, while Dole was better liked by the crowd. The embarrassing part was the behavior of much of the audience. Most of the audience were wealthy elderly people instead of students. The prices for season tickets for the Tate Lecture Series range from 600 to 1000 dollars. Students who do not have tickets from their scholarship program have to line up an hour beforehand for a set number of tickets reserved for students. The audience booed Al Gore when he brought up the statistic that a majority of Americans believed that Saddam Hussein was involved in 9/11, which is a fact. Also, the first question from the audience came from an old man who said that he did not pay so much money to hear a political speech from Al Gore. To their credit, Bob Dole and David Gergin defended Al and the crowd booed at the old man for his rudeness. Still, Al had to deal with a mostly unfriendly crowd. Poor guy.

Perhaps I should have used the brackets. It was a self-depricating Bugs Bunny reference.

I think all Americans sleep better knowing that Al Gore lost the 2000 election.

Actually, you're right. Without Al Gore, we wouldn't have this Internet to post these discussions.
