There is one major aspect that liberal media wouldn't touch: Clinton/Gore targeted the poor. In Gore vs. Bush, the poor -- and the masses who "get" why this matters to the country/economy as a whole -- voted third party or withheld their votes. That was a lot of votes for Gore to throw away.
A key issue concerning 2016: Millions of the poor, etc., voted for Obama in hopes that he could launch a legit discussion about our poverty crisis. He raised the issue a few times, Dems and libs aren't interested. This year alone, Dems agreed to virtually end food stamps for the elderly poor and the disabled who are on Social Security. Reportedly, the Dems plan extreme cuts in Social Security Disability -- far deeper than those made by the Clinton administration. As a result of Clinton's cuts, the disabled/seriously ill became the fastest-growing group of homeless people, and they did very poorly on the streets. President Obama finally restored benefits, undoubtedly saving lives. Nevertheless, the Clinton wing remains hell-bent on reversing all the progress made from FDR until Reagan/Clinton.
So, the war on the poor continues, as do the Dem efforts to "reform" Social Security. Of course this will have an impact on 2016.
