CONVENTION 2000 / THE DEMOCRATIC CONVENTION

You Had to Be There

August 17, 2000

What they're saying on the late-night shows about the Democratic convention:

*

'The Democrats are so impressed with Lieberman they are urging Lieberman to dump Gore.'

--David Letterman

*

'More people watched "Sur-vivor" than the Republican convention. To make sure the same thing doesn't happen during the Democratic convention, Al Gore says he's going to catch a lot of fish and walk around naked. '

--Conan O'Brien

*

'You know, Lieberman is known for being one of the most moral and devout men in Washington. Which is kind of like being the smartest guy on "The Jerry Springer Show."'

--Jay Leno

*

'Thursday night at the convention, the stage will be set for the biggest speech of Al Gore's life. Also scheduled for Thursday night: America's best night of sleep ever.'

--Craig Kilborn

*

'Hollywood loves this Gore-Lieberman ticket. I know this because today three studios green-lighted projects about a robot that teams up with a rabbi.'

--Bill Maher
