2. A Strong Voice for America

Rev. Jesse Jackson announced Wednesday he will not be a candidate for the Democratic nomination for President. Vice President Gore called Jesse Jackson "a strong voice for justice and progress in America."

"Jesse Jackson and his family have become close friends to me and my family over the past few years," Vice President Gore said. "I respect his leadership. I respect his dedication to the issues he is working on. I respect his energy and talent. He will play a major role in shaping the political and policy dialogue in 2000 -- and beyond. I look forward to continuing to work with him."
