Election 2000: The Governor's Race

BY Stedman Lesley

David McIntosh has built his campaign around a guarantee to cut residential property taxes by 25 percent if he's elected - a promise criticized as impossible because it is prohibitively expensive and requires legislative approval. But McIntosh is undeterred. In fact, he has staked his potential long-term career on it, promising he won 't seek re-election as governor if he fails to achieve his goal in his first four years. Democrats call the claim desperate, but those who know McIntosh say that's just his personality - confident and resolute.

A Will amd a Way: Political Style Matters

BY Jodi Edna

The vice president of the United States is leaning into his desk aboard Air Force Two, licking the sticky, red chicken-wing sauce off his fingertips, one digit at a time. Just like a regular guy. In this unguarded moment, he does not look like a man who, for the past eight years, has been in charge of U.S. policy on a number of fronts. But he was. When it came to science, technology, and, most of all, the environment, Gore was much more than the man behind The Man. He was dominant.
