Re: Gore Speech

Quick question: Doesn’t Gore’s actual argument feed the case made by evangelicals that the Democrats are deliberately filibustering judges of faith? I mean he’s saying that Christians are a religious faction who see their judges being discriminated against. Isn’t that pretty close to what evangelical conservatives have been saying? The merits of the argument(s) are one thing. But as a political argument, this seems like something the Democratic Party would try to avoid conceding.
