    You know you're in trouble when Glinda thanks you. Seeing that this is totally hypothetical, we would only be worried that a Democrat would **** up the campaign.

    No matter how you spin it, taking iniatives to create the internet does not mean inventing it. The truth is Al Gore had a great deal to do with the creation of the internet as we see it today. Without his work it may not ever have happened.,net.txt
    [ame=]Al Gore and information technology - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia[/ame]

    As far back as the 1970s Congressman Gore promoted the idea of high speed
    telecommunications as an engine for both economic growth and the
    improvement of our educational system. He was the first elected official
    to grasp the potential of computer communications to have a broader impact
    than just improving the conduct of science and scholarship. Though easily
    forgotten, now, at the time this was an unproven and controversial
    concept. Our work on the Internet started in 1973 and was based on even
    earlier work that took place in the mid-late 1960s. But the Internet, as
    we know it today, was not deployed until 1983. When the Internet was still
    in the early stages of its deployment, Congressman Gore provided
    intellectual leadership by helping create the vision of the potential
    benefits of high speed computing and communication. As an example, he
    sponsored hearings on how advanced technologies might be put to use in
    areas like coordinating the response of government agencies to natural
    disasters and other crises.

    As a Senator in the 1980s Gore urged government agencies to consolidate
    what at the time were several dozen different and unconnected networks
    into an "Interagency Network." Working in a bi-partisan manner with
    officials in Ronald Reagan and George Bush's administrations, Gore secured
    the passage of the High Performance Computing and Communications Act in
    1991. This "Gore Act" supported the National Research and Education
    Network (NREN) initiative that became one of the major vehicles for the
    spread of the Internet beyond the field of computer science.

    As Vice President Gore promoted building the Internet both up and out, as
    well as releasing the Internet from the control of the government agencies
    that spawned it. He served as the major administration proponent for
    continued investment in advanced computing and networking and private
    sector initiatives such as Net Day. He was and is a strong proponent of
    extending access to the network to schools and libraries. Today,
    approximately 95% of our nation's schools are on the Internet. Gore
    provided much-needed political support for the speedy privatization of the
    Internet when the time arrived for it to become a commercially-driven

    There are many factors that have contributed to the Internet's rapid
    growth since the later 1980s, not the least of which has been political
    support for its privatization and continued support for research in
    advanced networking technology. No one in public life has been more
    intellectually engaged in helping to create the climate for a thriving
    Internet than the Vice President. Gore has been a clear champion of this
    effort, both in the councils of government and with the public at large.

    The Vice President deserves credit for his early recognition of the value
    of high speed computing and communication and for his long-term and
    consistent articulation of the potential value of the Internet to American
    citizens and industry and, indeed, to the rest of the world.
