Gore's comments on Lott
Your information is a bit flawed, Donat. During the celebration Lott did not just say "he is a good man", he said that if Thurman had been elected president when he ran, we would not have all the problems the United States has been through since then. Now...when Thurman was running for president...he was pro-segregation. So yes, when Lott said that his state was proud of voting for him back then, it could seem a bit racist. Especially that "all the problems" part. Heh.
