Hoping to draw a parallel
"And my margin of victory was THIS LARGE!"
Here's some more swag from the 1992 Clinton campaign: the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette from the day after, announcing the arrival of a new direction in leadership. This is a terrific reminder of what can happen when a Democratic candidate overcomes the hurdles it takes to beat a Bush. They said it was impossible. They called him weak. They sold stories of his womanizing. They joked about his oratorical skills. They said he'd never be president, especially in the light of Bush's war in Iraq. Clinton still came through and kicked ass. Proof positive that, at least sometimes, the good guys win. Underneath the fold is a headline that would be nice to see again, though that seems unlikely given Bush's track record in elections:
Nov. 4, 1992 and/or Nov. 3, 2004?
Take heed: real work for change begins now. We can do it. Why? Because we've already done it!
