Picks and Pans Review: Sounds Off
Donna Brazile Al Gore's '00 campaign manager and the author of a new memoir, Cooking with Grease: Stirring the Pots in American Politics, CNN commentator Brazile weighs in on the Bush-Kerry race.
ON ATTRACTING THE YOUNG VOTE
I'd take a page from Clinton with his saxophone and tell Kerry to pull out his electric guitar. I'd tell Bush to throw baseballs—his passion. They need to talk about their passions.
ON FASHION If his wife let me in the house one day, I'd take Kerry's pink tie and throw it away. He needs a strong red power tie. Bush? Keep the jeans on. I like that down-home look.
ON DEBATING Given American Idol, I think we should cancel the debates and have a duet. Let America sing along. Perhaps more people would get involved.
BUT SERIOUSLY... Proceeds from my book are going to educate people about voting. My first check is going to Jacksonville, Fla., where 27,000 ballots were lost [in '00]. Don't get mad; get even.
