History

In my paper the Democratic Candidates are Al Gore and Bill Bradley. They both have a
lot of the same views on issues that have come out in the campaigning. For the
Rebublicans it is George W. Bush and John McCain. Both of these guys have different
views on their issues. The debates between these two men have really been heating up
and it will be interesting to see the outcome of this election. But also on the other side of
this the Democratic battle has also been a though one but I think Bradley will drop out.
He feels and knows he is over matched.
Al Gore served in the U.S. Army in Vietnam. He worked for seven years as a
newspaper reporter and then was elected to Congress from Tennessee. After eight years
in the House of Representatives and eight years as an U.S. Senator from Tennessee, he
was elected Vice President of the United States.
For almost seven years, Al Gore has been a central member of President Clinton's
economic team -- helping to design the program that has led to our strong economy,
casting the tie-breaking Senate vote for the plan in 1993, helping to pass the first balanced
budget in 30 years. He has helped to usher in the longest peacetime economic expansion
in American history -- with over 18 million new jobs, wages rising twice the rate of
inflation, the lowest African-American and Hispanic poverty on record, the highest level
of private home ownership ever, more investment in our cities, and the lowest
unemployment in 29 years.
Since his days in the House and Senate, Vice President Gore's environmental
record has been unparalleled. He leads the Administration's efforts to protect the
environment in a way that also strengthens the economy -- such as working with the Big
Three auto makers to support the development of a new generation of fuel- and
energy-efficient vehicles, and working to combat global warming in a way that also
creates new jobs, by helping America lead the estimated $400 billion worldwide market
for new technologies that clean up the environment.

Bill Bradley was born on July 28, 1943, in Crystal City, Missouri, the only
child of Warren and Susan Bradley. The Bradleys lived a comfortable,
middle-class life in a small, multiracial, multiethnic town on the banks of the
Mississippi River, thirty-six miles south of St. Louis. The Crystal City of Bill's
youth was a blue-collar company town with a single stoplight and a population of
3,492. With the support of his family and the close-knit community around him,
Bill developed the values that have guided him as a leader, athlete, writer, U.S.
Senator, and presidential candidate.
While Bill was growing up, Warren Bradley was a respected small-town
banker. He had been forced to quit high school at age sixteen to help support his
family, taking a job with the St. Louis-San Francisco Railroad. A few years later,
he began what was to become a long and fulfilling career at the local bank, first
"shining pennies," and working his way up to become assistant cashier, cashier,
and eventually president of the bank. He gave Bill his first job as a janitor at the
bank during school breaks. A reserved man, Warren Bradley had a clear sense of
ethics and lived by a strict code of conduct. Warren's proudest achievement was
that he never foreclosed on a single homeowner throughout the Great
Depression, something that earnedhim the admiration and gratitude of the local
community.
Bill's mother was an energetic and strong-willed former schoolteacher.
Susie Bradley taught Sunday school classes at the Presbyterian Church across
the street from the Bradley home, which the family attended every week. She also
doted on her only son. Susie kept Bill active and involved as a child, enrolling him
in piano, trumpet, French, swimming, basketball, boxing, and French horn. She
was the den mother of his Cub Scout group and attended all of his activities and
sporting events. Susie stressed the importance of manners and modesty to Bill.
He would win a race or game, but she would convince him that he hadn't won,
that he just had longer legs than the other boys. Susie also made sure the
neighborhood kids felt welcome in their house. The Bradley home became a
popular gathering place for Bill and his friends, where they played pinball in the
basement, watched "American Bandstand" on TV, and traded baseball cards in
the backyard.
Basketball was Bill's passion, but under his mother's guidance, he developed into a
well-rounded young man and a good student. As a Boy Scout, he earned the rank of Eagle
Scout. While his high school's student body president, Bill organized a state student
council convention, bringing together student leaders throughout Missouri to Crystal
City. He was also a member of the baseball and track teams.
The college basketball recruiters flocked to Crystal City Bill's senior year. Susie
Bradley wanted her son to stay close to home and attend the University of Missouri.
Warren Bradley didn't understand all the fuss being made about their son's athletic
prospects. In all, seventy-five colleges offered Bill athletic scholarships. Bill chose Duke
University in North Carolina.
But during the summer between high school and college, Bill's future took a
different turn. Warren Bradley sent his son to Europe on an educational tour. This trip
exposed the small-town boy to the larger world and sparked his interest in international
affairs. In particular, Oxford, England, caught Bill's eye. He learned about the Rhodes
Scholarship, which provided college graduates with the opportunity to study at Oxford
University. After he returned home, Bill broke his foot. For the first time he was
confronted with the possibility of not being able to play basketball. At the last
minute-four days before the Duke freshman class convened-Bill changed his mind and
decided to attend Princeton University, a school that did not give out athletic
scholarships, but, as Bill had learned, had an impressive record of producing Rhodes
Scholars.

Al Gore supported the Largest Single Increase in Education Investment in 30
Years. As part of the 1997 Balanced Budget Act, Congress passed the HOPE scholarship
tax credit program proposed by the Administration. This new program will give students
a $1,500 tax credit that will help make the first two years of college universally available.
The HOPE Scholarships are expected to help 5.9 million students attend college. The
1997 Act included other tax deductions that helped make it the largest single increase in
education spending in 30 years.
The Vice President has called on Congress to build upon the successes made last
year to reduce class sizes in grades 1-3. As part of the Fiscal 1999 budget, Congress
agreed to partially fund an Administration initiative to help schools hire and support
additional teachers. Gore is now challenging Congress to finish the job by providing the
funding needed to hire 100,000 new teachers.
As part of the Fiscal 2000 budget plan, the President and Vice President
introduced a proposal to build and modernize 6,000 schools nationwide. In announcing
this new proposal, Vice President Gore stated that we "…need to ensure that our children
are learning 21st Century skills in 21st Century classrooms," and that "no child should be
forced to learn in a temporary trailer."
In 1996, Vice President Gore launched the national initiative to wire every
classroom to the Internet. Under the E-Rate program more than 62,000 school districts
and libraries applied for E-rate funds in the first two grant cycles. In the first eighteen
months of the program, more than 80,000 schools and libraries received $1.66 billion in
funding - helping to connect 640,000 classrooms to the Internet. More than 53% of those
schools and libraries receiving funding were in the poorest neighborhoods.
As Vice President, Al Gore has worked hard to bring advances in technology into
the classroom to help prepare today's students for the challenges of the next century.
Investments in educational technology have increased thirty-fold under this
Administration - from $23 million in 1993 to nearly $700 million last year. Gore's
commitment to educational technology began when he was member of Congress. In 1984,
