This article was written at least a decade ago. The discourse is more civil than what one might expect in today's climate. It is still, however, a "he said, she said" piece that leaves the reader wondering if either contributor is correct.
Reinvented or not, ten years later, we have a larger deficit, higher unemployment, more poverty, and according to an article in today's paper, less trust in our national institutions. Additionally, our debates about these issues are more polarized than ever.

How does one organize such a large number of "owners" to the point of agreeing upon how we want our government run? This question has long puzzled me and seems to be at the root of so many of our national problems.

Both sides of the above debate make valid points but where are the clear suggestions for solutions? Complaining isn't the same as fixing.

Bipartisanism of the body of governing our US Senate is needed to reinvent our government.

Carla Crombie

Just exactly where have the efforts to "reinvent government" gotten us? This article, like most political debates, leaves me feeling frustrated. As long as our public officials ignore the concerns and desires of the citizens, the concept that "they work for us" is as empty as their promises.

The writer of this article appears to be angry with Al Gore and wants everybody to know it. Al Gore may have not kept all his promises, but he is no different than any other Politician. I agree he can not do this along , but it calls for every part of government to do their part to better government.

The person who wrote this article seems to mad and or irritated with the government. Not just Al Gore but the government period. There was a question at the end of the reading,do you feel better about your government today than before Clinton-Gore took office? Well no I don't feel better because some people are just breaking down our President and what the democratic people are trying to do. Why can't we all just get along and be happy.
