Clinton, Gore Nominated in New York

AP -- july 16, 1992

Arkansas Governor William J. Clinton selected an unconventional candidate to run with him. Normally, a Southern candidate taps a Northern running mate to balance the ticket. Governor Clinton did not do this, he selected fellow Southerner Al Gore, Jr. of Tennessee to be his running mate. Senator Gore, who sought the Democratic nomination in 1988, is nearly the same age as the Governor but adds a slew of environmental and foreign policy experience to the ticket, as well as his commitment to family values. In his acceptance speech, Governor Clinton tied himself to Thomas Jefferson, highlighting his dedicated to America and his years of service and the common “Southern heritage” the men shared. The DNC was a massive success and appears to have given the Clinton/Gore ticket a 3% bump nationally. A heart-wrenching moment came on the first day, when news broke that former President Robert F. Kennedy had passed away in his sleep that morning.

Kemp, Domenici Nominated in Houston

AP -- August 20, 1992

Former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Jack F. Kemp selected a much more traditional running mate, New Mexico Senator Pietro V. “Pete” Domenici, to balance out the North-eastern Kemp. Domenici was added for a similar purpose as Senator Gore on the Democratic ticket, for his environmental experience. Senator Domenici is a long-time advocate of nuclear energy, as well as other non-traditional energies. The highlight of the convention was not Secretary Kemp or Senator Domenici’s speech, it was the speech given by former Secretary of State Ronald W. Reagan. Reagan suspended his presidential campaign in 1988 and resigned as Secretary of State due to his diagnosis with early onset alzheimers. The former California governor made his way onto the stage with the help of former President Bob Dole and gave a stirring speech about his work with Kemp, and Kemp’s dedication to service, but Reagan also spoke about his career and how it has sadly come to a close in less than pleasant circumstances. There was not a dry eye in the Astrodome, the convention site.

Situation Heating Up in Kuwait, President Cuomo Orders Air Strikes

AP -- August 25, 1992

More than two years after Iraqi President Saddam Hussein invaded Kuwait, the United States is taking action. Following the passage of United Nations Resolution 678, President Mario Cuomo, now a lame-duck, announced that the United States will begin a series of airstrikes on “key Iraqi locations within occupied Kuwait” in an Oval Office address. President Cuomo was clear to point out there will be no boots on the ground in Kuwait, “unless the situation disintegrates to a point that is not favorable to air strikes.” Republican Nominee Jack Kemp applauded the action, but said that “it is not possible” to liberate Kuwait “without physically doing so, by storming the cities...”. Democratic Nominee, Governor Bill Clinton, could not be reached for a comment, but the Democratic Vice Presidential Nominee, Senator Al Gore, Jr., said “Both Governor Clinton and I support President Cuomo and trust his leadership.” Vice President Jimmy Carter met with Congressional Leaders to discuss a war resolution from Congress, should the President require one.

Kemp, Clinton Debate in New York City

AP -- October 5, 1992

 Former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Jack F. Kemp and Governor William J. Clinton of Arkansas met at Hofstra University in New York City for the first of two Presidential Debates. The primary topic of the debate was foreign policy, with an emphasis on the Soviet Union and Kuwait/Iraq. Secretary Kemp stated that is is his “goal to bring about the transition to democracy in the Soviet Union.” Governor Clinton attacked Kemp for being vague, saying “You’re not saying what you’ll do for democracy, I am.” A question about the early 1990s recession came up, from an audience member, and sent Kemp into a nose dive. The question, read by 32-year old Adam Hansen of New Jersey, was “To both of the candidates: How did the recession in 1990 and 1991 effect you, personally.” Secretary Kemp stammered for a few minutes before saying “I...uh...think everyone was affected by the...uh...recession a few years ago. It uh...raised interest rates and...made it hard to invest and brought down...the economy.” Governor Clinton sprang up and replied “I’ll tell you how it affected me. I’ve been the Governor of a small state for twelve years. If someone loses their job, there’s a good chance I’ll known ‘em by name, when a factory closes I’ll know the people who worked there and ran it. I feel your pain, I know what you’re going through.” In his rebuttal, Secretary Kemp said “Just because I...someone hasn’t been personally affected by the recession doesn’t mean they don’t know what it’s like. That’s like saying ‘You don’t have cancer, you don’t know what it’s like’. It’s not fair, and it’s not right.”

Who do you think won the first Presidential debate?
Governor Clinton - 56%
Secretary Kemp - 23%
Neither/Undecided/No Opinion - 21%

Gore, Domenici Debate

AP -- October 11, 1992

 Senator Al Gore, Jr. of Tennessee and Senator Pete Domenici of New Mexico met in Atlanta, Georgia for the only debate between the Vice Presidential candidates. Both candidates echoed many of the sentiments that their presidential candidates made a week ago. Senator Gore hit on his experience from the Senate Armed Services Committee, but the main focus of the debate was both the Senators’ strong points: the environment. Gore focused on the need for strict reforms to combat global warming, while Senator Domenici advocated for investments in nuclear, wind, and solar energies. The candidates rarely spared with each other, but had a healthy discussion of their views and their credentials, should they be required to assume the Presidency.

Who do you think won the Vice Presidential Presidential debate?
Senator Gore - 24%
Senator Domenici - 22%
Neither/Undecided/No Opinion - 54%

Clinton, Kemp Meet for Second Debate

AP -- October 20, 1992

Governor Bill Clinton and former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Jack Kemp met for their second and final debate last night. This debate had none of the high-tension moments of their first meeting, but did include a few memorable one-liners. Mr. Kemp went on the attack, labeling Mr. Clinton as “The new face of Cuomo,” going on to say that electing Mr. Clinton would be “four more years of the suffering that has occurred under President Cuomo.” Mr. Kemp spent much of the debate highlighting his career in business as the majority owner of the Buffalo Bills. Governor Clinton continued with his folksy offensive, trying to show himself as the more likable, more personable candidate.

Who do you think won the second Presidential debate?
Governor Clinton - 34%
Secretary Kemp - 27%
Neither/Undecided/No Opinion - 39%

B. Walters: ABC is now making the final calls for America’s Choice ‘92. Governor Clinton has nearly a 100-point lead over Mr. Kemp, but enough states are still in play that it could go either way.

Too Close to Call in Iowa

Montana for Kemp

Nevada for Clinton

Utah for Kemp

California for Clinton

William J. Clinton, Elected 40th President of the United States

Idaho for Kemp

Oregon for Clinton

Washington for Clinton

Alaska for Kemp


Governor William J. Clinton/Senator Albert A. Gore, Jr. (D) - 328
Mr. Jack F. Kemp/Senator Pietro V. Domenici (R) - 203
Too-close: 7

B. Walters: Although Governor Clinton had been elected President by a substantial margin some hours ago, ABC can only now project, at 3 A.M. on the East Coast due to a recount in numerous counties, that the President-elect will carry the state of Iowa.


Governor William J. Clinton/Senator Albert A. Gore, Jr. (D) - 335

U.S. Troops March into Kuwait

AP -- March 1, 1993

Early this morning President Bill Clinton announced that American troops would take part in a NATO-led coalition to liberate Kuwait. Iraqi President Saddam Hussein launched an invasion into the small, Middle Eastern country a little more than a year ago. President Cuomo launched unilateral airstrikes at the end of last year in an attempt to weaken the Iraqi infrastructure. It is expected, by military analysts, that the operations will only last a few months or a year at most. “Saddam Hussein isn’t a good general,” former Rear Admiral George Hanson said “And he can’t hold back this surge of international troops.”

Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell Takes Effect

AP -- February 2, 1994

Today is the first day that the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” Military policy takes effect. The policy was announced late last year by Colin Powell, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and began full implementation today. The policy was drafted by President Bill Clinton and bans homosexuals from openly serving in the U.S. Military. In the announcement, it was stated that the presence of gays "would create an unacceptable risk to the high standards of morale, good order and discipline, and unit cohesion that are the essence of military capability.” A poll shows that 61% of Americans support DADT, while 22% don’t, and 17% are not sure or have no opinion.

There was backroom dealing going on, with Whitman promising her VP slot to Weld if he dropped out. She pulled the "I'm more electable than you because I'm a woman" card.

Domenici, Lugar Nominated in San Diego
AP -- August 15, 1996

In an unsurprising move New Mexico Senator Pietro V. Domenici tapped his primary opponent, Indiana Senator Richard A. Lugar, as his running mate. This was announced the day of the convention in an attempt to build up hype about the ticket. The highlight of the convention came not from either of the Senators’ acceptance speeches, it came from the keynote address, given by Massachusetts Senator Willard M. “Mitt” Romney. Senator Romney was elected in 1994 to the seat formerly held by now-Supreme Court Justice Edward M. “Ted” Kennedy. His speech was a rousing address on the need to moderate the party, to protect the common man, and to fight for lower taxes for all americans. Senator Romney received a 6-minute standing ovation.

Perot Launches 3rd Party Campaign, Taps Forbes
September 2, 1996

Businessman and former Republican Primary contender H. Ross Perot announced today that he would be launching a 3rd Party campaign for President. Perot said that he’d be running under the “American Business” Party banner. In his announcement, Perot said that he’s running because “President Clinton is making this nation anti-business. I will change that.” He announced that he had already received ballot access in 43 states and is working on it in the other 7. Fellow businessman and magazine editor Malcolm Stevenson Forbes, Jr. announced that he is running as Perot’s Vice President.
