On February 2nd, Senator Al Gore announces his Presidential run.  "Today Americans I'm announcing my run for President of the United States.  I run as a moderate Democrat.  I believe we need some government involvement but not too much.  I believe we need to do better than President Goldwater has done and that's why I'm running.  Thank you and God Bless America."

Back in the House they debate Repeal of Energy Department Act of 1987 which would get rid of the Department of Energy over the period of a few years.  House Minority Leader Jim Wright says "This is a terrible piece of legislation.  We can't afford to lose this Department.  We need to look out for the environment and make sure Earth is safe for our descendants."  The final vote is 235-200.  However in the Senate there's a different story.  A majority of Democrats and a few Republicans feel this is not the time to be talking about this.

Wait and see what happens.

The Senate votes 53-47 against the bill.  6 Republicans (John Chafee, Mark Hatfield, Warren Rudman, Nancy Kassaebaum, Lowell Weicker and John Danforth) voted against it.

Late in February Senator Gary Hart announces his run for the Democratic nomination for President.  "Today I announce my candidacy for the Democratic nomination for President.  I want to better represent America than the Goldwater administration has.  We need someone who will look out for all Americans rather than the privileged few.  That's why I'm the best candidate in 1988.  Thank you and God Bless America."

Senator Walter Mondale announces he's a candidate for the Democratic nomination for President.  "I feel we need someone in this race who is a moderate to liberal candidate.  We don't really have that with the exception of maybe Jesse Jackson.  Anyways, I hope the Democrats can take back the White House and I plan do it.  Thank you and God Bless America."

MO Senator John Danforth states "I may run for President.  This President needs to show me he can work with both sides of the aisle.  He can't keep pressing for all these anti-government crusades.  We need government.  Government is supposed to help everyone to an extent.  Anyways, I will be thinking of the next few months what I should do."

Meanwhile, Speaker Robert Michel, Senate Majority Leader Howard Baker and President Goldwater discuss modifying the Government Budget Act of 1986.  They come up with a bill that will cut taxes for everyone (including the rich), stop some of the regulations that were under place in the previous administration (including some of the EPA standards) and the Senate will just need 50 votes in favor, as Vice President Crane is a Republican.  The House and Senate propose the Balanced Budget Act of 1987.

In late summer Speaker Michel brings up the Balanced Budget Act of 1987.  The Democrats call this a "terrible act in which the Republicans try to say where they'll cut everyone's taxes but will only really cut taxes for the poor."  Former President Kennedy says "The Republicans will do anything to give tax breaks for the rich."

Senators John Danforth and Mark Hatfield come out against the bill saying "There was a budget passed last year and it should be fine until it ends in 5 years when a new budget will be passed."  Even with their likely "nay" votes it could still pass.  The House votes 238-197.  The Senate's version of the bill (the New And Modified Budget Act of 1987) would basically keep the debt ceiling at 1.5 trillion over 5 years with across the board tax cuts.  The Senate agreed to this 60-40.  The House then voted on the Senate bill 256-179.  President Goldwater signs it on August 29, 1987.

On November 25, 1987 Senator John Danforth and Senator Mark Hatfield state they endorse Gary Hart for President instead of President Goldwater.  "Goldwater has ruined the Republican Party and it's old ways of thinking, therefore we can't endorse the President."

Even former President Ford states "President Goldwater has gotten a little too extreme.  We need someone to challenge him in the primaries."

Former President Reagan states "President Goldwater's doing a great job.  For those of you skeptics: he's stood true to his statement of lower taxes and less government."

Democratic Nomination poll:
Gary Hart 35%
Al Gore 30%
Walter Mondale 23%
Jesse Jackson 10%
Undecided 2%

I'm wondering if there'll be another Anderson type run in 1988. I'd suggest Lowell Weicker, Republican Senator from Connecticut, but he's up for re-election in 1988.

Gore 19%-4 delegates
Jackson 11%-3 delegates

Senator Gary Hart states "Thank you New Hampshire.  With this win I'm now the frontrunner for the nomination and hope to win more primaries in the following weeks ahead.  Thanks again and let's go forward to Vermont."

Senator Walter Mondale states "Tonight New Hampshire has shown us that our campaign isn't over yet."

Senator Al Gore states "I don't want my supporters to think that our support in New Hampshire should reflect the next primaries.  However we need to show the Americans why I'm better than Senator Hart, former Senator Mondale and Reverend Jackson.  Thank you."

Reverend Jesse Jackson states "Hey New Hampshire.  Tonight we came in 4th place but that's not going to stop us from running.  We need to address the issues of the minority.  For over a hundred years minorities whether they be black, disabled or any other haven't had their fair share here.  Thank you everyone."

On March 10th, 1988 CT Senator Lowell Weicker decides he will not run for re-election in the Senate so he can be an Independent candidate for President.  "I feel that President Goldwater is a terrible President.  We need a President who looks out for all Americans.  I also feel that our Republican Party isn't that far right and America isn't that far right."

Senators Mark Hatfield and John Danforth decide to relinquish their support for Senator Gary Hart and endorse Senator Lowell Weicker.  "We feel he's got better ideas than the Senator from Colorado."
