This week in our series, we look at the presidential election of two thousand.It was an election that few Americans would soon forget."The Presidential race looks jar-lid-tight. We could be in for a long night,as voters decide whether Vice President Al Gore or Texas Governor George Bush will be the next President of the United States. It is that close."In two thousand, Americans were preparing to elect a new president in November. The United States Constitution limits presidents to two terms.Bill Clinton would be leaving office. So his Democratic Party needed to choose a new candidate.The Democrats nominated Clinton's vice president, Al Gore. Gore chose Senator Joseph Lieberman of Connecticut as his running mate.Lieberman became the first Jewish candidate ever nominated by a major party to such a high office.He was first elected to the Senate in nineteen eighty-eight.
