To me it's more like which set of " whoopies" do you want in control of the federal government. Arkansas & Tennessee "whoopies" or Georgia & Mississippi "whoopies" i.e. Clinton and Gore or Gingrich and Lott. It's that simple.
Doug, I really don't think that you hate Clinton. I mean how can you hate a southern fried version of bozo the clown with all the endearing qualities of a Mel Brook's character. Remember the governor in Blazzing Saddles.
Then there is Al "the Pathfinder" Gore; reportedly the only guy who can get lost in his own backyard. I'm sure that money he took from the Buddhists,or so he thought, was to build churches in east Tennessee or some good cause like that. If Clinton goes down he will take Gore with him; so for all you fans of Al "the father of tax abatement" Gore its a two fer.
Now let's look at the alternative. Two really mean-spirited unreconstructed "whoopies" is what you get in Gingrich and Lott. Sure they are clowns too, but, they are not funny. At least Clinton and Gore make an attempt to be funny southern politicians and you get a laugh out of their antics once and a while. You can't say that about Gingrich & Lott. Where is the entertainment value in those two?
Possibly, what we need in this country is an ordeal by hominy and grit eating. Who ever eats more hominy and grits wins.
