Democratic National Convention 2000
This convention is mostly remembered for when Al Gore stepped on stage and shocked the nation with his public display of affection towards his wife Tipper. The most important part of this convention was how he presented his agenda to the public after he formally accepted the nomination. He planned to work towards universal healthcare, better education, improving social security, to address campaign finance, and find cures to incurable diseases such as HIV/AIDS and cancer. It's ironic that these issues he addressed over a decade ago still need to be improved. Who knows, maybe if he was elected instead of George W. Bush these would not be problems that are facing our nation today?
