When John F. Kennedy was running for President, Harry Truman said at one
point, "Anyone who votes for Nixon is going to hell!" Kennedy, who was
being attacked for his Roman Catholicism reportedly sent a note,
"Dear Harry, Let's not raise religion as an issue."

Whatever we do in New York City that ties marijuana law reform to Bill
Clinton will hurt Clinton. Almost all social minded registered voters
and Rainbows who don't vote Libertarian are likely to vote for Clinton.
Indeed, most pot smokers are likely to vote for Clinton over Bush or
Texas War on Drugs Perot. For Clinton to win, and become the first
publicly self-declared pot smoking president, he will have to convince
a lot of undecided voters in the middle. The more pot-smoking is tied
to Clinton, the fewer of those undecided votes he will get.

If we have to raise hell around a campaign, let's go to Houston and
expose that bozo Dan Quayle as a hypocrite and liar.
