Joint Crisis Cabinet: United States Presidential Election of 2000 (George Bush vs. Al Gore)
Joint Crisis Cabinets, are simulations of wars or elections that have vitally affected the history for years and consist of two different cabinets with contradicting aims and ambitions. In this years’ JCC, delegates will be simulating the United States Presidential Election of 2000. Campaigns launched by George W. Bush and Al Gore will compete in order to win the 54. Quadrennial presidential election of the United States of America. George W. Bush, the Governor of Texas at the time, who is also the eldest son of 41. President of the United States of America, was the sole hope of the Republicans as they have lost the last two elections and they were determined to win the next one. The Democratic Party was on a victory streak with Bill Clinton but due to the term limits established by the 22nd Amendment to the Constitution, the President was not able to run for four more years, Al Gore, who was the vice president of Bill Clinton, was nominated as the presidential candidate by the Democratic Party. It was one of the most competitive elections ever held in the history of the United States. Even though Gore had more popular votes, Bush had the majority of electoral votes and he was elected as the 43rd president of the United States. In KMUN 2019, the delegates of these opponent cabinets will implement political strategies which they believe will advance their bosses into the office of the most powerful person in the free world; Commander-in Chief of the United States of America.
