'Smash-mouth politics'

It's Your Call

April 24, 1992

Presidential candidate Bill Clinton got a lot of media attention earlier this week for switching the focus of his campaign from his Democratic Party opposition to the Bush administration. He served notice that he'll be campaigning vigorously, using what one adviser referred to as "smash-mouth politics -- right in your face." The Bush campaign, most political observers say, is no slouch when it comes to rough, often negative politicking.

The Evening Sun would like your opinion. Does the practice of national politicians attacking one another "smash-mouth" style generate the kind of information voters need to make informed choices?
