I am responding to your editorial regarding Joe Lieberman’s comments that he and Al Gore already beat George Bush (“Stumbling backward,” June 9).
While I agree with your editorial writer that it will do the Democrats no good to relive the 2000 campaign, I have to wonder what would have happened if everyone’s roles in the election were reversed. If the Republicans were to lose by such a close margin, I don’t think that the Trib would just move on. I am sure that there would be reminders on the editorial page everyday of “Gore’s illegitimacy.”
Again, I have no problem with your opinion, but ask that you honestly think of how you would have covered the reverse result of the election.
