Since the landslide 1994 election, prominent Democrats have been trying hard to look like Republicans, but Vice President Al Gore has gone to extremes ("America Loves a Puzzle," by David Lauter, April 2).

Knowing the insidious ways of politicians, this might be Alexander's stealthy way of confirming speculation that he's really running for vice president. Or maybe those guys from Nashville all look alike.
