WASHINGTON -- Disillusioned by scandal, an uncertain electorate was having second thoughts about the performance of its president as his eight years in office drew to a close. His hand-picked successor, a two-term vice president, was lagging in the polls against a governor who portrayed himself as a Washington outsider with fresh ideas.President Clinton? Vice President Al Gore? Texas Gov. George W. Bush?No. The year was 1988, not 1999, and the president was Ronald Reagan, who after seven years in office saw his approval rating flagging in the wake of the Iran-contra investigations.

Less than three months before the first votes are cast for president, states and parties are still leapfrogging backward. Not only is the nominating calendar not yet set in stone, it is not even set in mud. The Republican primary in Iowa has been moved back to Jan. 3, and the Democratic Party in South Carolina is trying to get its primary moved to Jan. 26. What's next? Primaries for 2012 starting in December 2008? I have a modest primary proposal: Just eliminate the general election of 2008.

Texas Gov. Bush is the clear choice to restore our values The Sun's editorial endorsing Vice President Al Gore was right on one point only: The choice between the candidates is clear ("Gore is best choice for president," Oct. 29). Vice President Al Gore harkens back to the liberal solutions of yesterday's heroes: Presidents Franklin Roosevelt, Lyndon Johnson and John Kennedy. All were proponents of centralized, federally run programs devised and implemented by an elitist political minority.

Florida has run enough recounts of state's ballots I must agree with those who feel two vote counts in Florida are sufficient. The thought of having a few heavily Democratic counties determine the outcome of a national election because a relatively small number of voters had difficulty following directions is quite distressing. Problems with ballots and vote counting were common throughout the country. Why should the voters of one county get a chance to have their mistakes corrected when other voters will not get the same opportunity?

WASHINGTON -- Bruce Springsteen, as well as anyone, put words to the feeling that permeates America five years into the first decade of the new millennium - a sense that life is the same, except that it's not. "The sky is still the same unbelievable blue," Springsteen marvels in a song from The Rising, his redemptive response to the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. The brilliant clarity of that blue is tied in our memory to America as it was. But there was danger hidden in that vast sky. The decade's first half also ended memorably, with a catastrophic blow.

ARLINGTON, Va. - After the seemingly endless preliminaries, now comes the main event tomorrow night. Will many people watch the "debates," which will resemble joint news conferences? The rules are so strict that the candidates don't engage each other. One-third of homes with television sets watched the first 2000 presidential debate between Texas Gov. George W. Bush and Vice President Al Gore. The first debate traditionally draws the most viewers, possibly including those precious "undecideds," so here is some unsolicited advice and suggested questions for both candidates.

The World As the first anniversary of the toppling of Saddam Hussein's regime passed, U.S. troops were fighting a growing insurgency involving both Shiite and Sunni Muslims. More than 40 Americans have been killed in combat since April 1. Some U.S. troops expecting to leave Iraq in the coming weeks might see their deployments extended because of the surge in violence, Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld said. An Iraqi judge issued an arrest warrant for rebel cleric Muqtada al-Sadr in the killing of a Shiite rival shortly after the U.S.-led invasion of the country.

Shuttle service hasn't departed from downtown DASH service is not ending ("Tourist shuttle fails," editorial, Sept. 12). As The Sun reported in August, DASH resources are being redeployed to reflect the fact that monthly commuters, rather than intermittent users, make up the majority of riders ("Downtown shuttle is retooled," Aug. 27). While the system and schedule have been changed as a result, two routes will continue to circulate throughout downtown, and non-monthly riders will continue to be able to use the service for 50 cents.

WASHINGTON -- In a small room at a local steakhouse the other night, former Vice President Al Gore showed up for his first fund-raising stint of 2002 in behalf of a Democratic congressional candidate. No more than 40 or so of the party faithful turned out to hear him. The beneficiary was Rep. Richard Neal, the first member of the Massachusetts delegation to come out foursquare for him in the 2000 election. Mr. Neal, in introducing Mr. Gore, said his concession speech then was "an outward manifestation of inner grace."
