Clinton-Gore is dull, but Dole-Kemp is a kooky delight
In his acceptance speech at last week’s convention, President Clinton envisioned a 21st century in which every American child would be wired by the age of 12, but it seems the cyber-friendly Democrats could learn a thing or two from the not-so-old-fashioned Republicans. While the official Clinton-Gore website (www.cg96.org) makes a solid — if dull — bookmark on your browser, the Dole-Kemp site (www.dole96.com) is an interactive, kooky delight, featuring such treats as a do-it-yourself poster maker and heroic photo downloads of Dole’s would-be First Schnauzer, Leader. Both presidential campaign sites offer the requisite political agendas and bios, so it’s ironic that the self-proclaimed ”bridge to the past” has the website that trailblazes into the future. Check out a glimpse of former software magnate Ross Perot’s campaign at the Reform Party’s URL (www.reformparty.org) before Team Perot takes the Internet plunge this month.
