Presidential hopeful Gephardt makes final push before Iowa
Continued from Page 1A
cratic candidates. But President Bush still remains a
major target for Democratic fire, especially as he
begins campaigning for the upcoming election.
"I don't think his proposals are worth anything
and I think he's made a mess of the presidency. He's
running a $450 billion deficit. He's led us in all the
wrong directions," Gephardt said.
"He's isolated us from the world in a difficult
time. I don't think going to Mars is going to get
us anywhere," he said referring to Bush's plans to
create a colony on the moon and increase travel
Bush's 2002 No Child Left Behind education
and health care programs receive the most criticism
from Gephardt, whose strongest policies are based
on the same issues.
His universal health care plan begins by provid-
ing a tax credit to employers which must be used
for health care, safeguarding workers' health care
coverage. Currently, 160 million Americans receive
health insurance from their employers.
"(In Michigan) I'm going to talk a lot about edu-
the michigan daily
cation and the creation of a Teacher Corps where
I'll have the federal government pay for your loans
(for students studying to become teachers),"
Gephardt said. His education plan focuses on
recognition of teachers as the most important factor
in providing education and the "continued success"
of public schools in America.
For higher education, Gephardt looks to expand
Pell grants - federal need-based college grants -
and loan programs to combat rising tuition and
increase eligibility for financial aid. Gephardt links
his health care plan directly to economic stimulus,
an aspect he says other candidates' plans do not
This idea is closely tied to former President Bill
Clinton's economic policies that Gephardt support-
ed in Congress during the Clinton administration,
such as middle-class tax cuts.
A major front where Gephardt diverges from
Clinton is in trade discussions.
"I'm the only one who fought against things like
(the North American Free Trade Agreement). I was
against the (Free Trade Agreement for the Americ-
as) and Fast track from the start.
"I've got the most progressive trade policy of all
the candidates," Gephardt said, referring to several
of Clinton's free-trade initiatives."
Although recent U.S. foreign policy has focused
largely on rebuilding Iraq, Gephardt touts a broad
international agenda. It includes decreasing the
nation's dependence on foreign oil and creating an
international minimum wage based on "the impera-
tive of protecting human dignity around the world
and American jobs here at home," Gephardt said in
a written statement last month.
For institutes of higher education, Gephardt
expressed his support for the University's race-con-
scious admissions policies, which the U.S. Supreme
Court upheld following a hearing last June.
"I agree with the position of the University and
disagree with the position of the Bush administra-
tion and I'm happy that the Supreme Court decid-
ed the position in favor of affirmative action,"
In spite of Gephardt's confidence stemming
from years of legislative experience in education,
health care and trade, other candidates' supporters
on campus feel these are his weakest areas.
"Gephardt doesn't have the mass enthusiasm or
organization of candidates like (former Vermont
Gov. Howard) Dean. Most young people aren't
excited about his campaign," said LSA sopho-
more Libby Benton, also vice chair of Students
"(Gephardt) doesn't have a very good track
record and represents what is wrong with the
Democratic Party. When he was leader of the
House, he didn't step up when he should have."
Gephardt was House Democratic Leader during
the 2002 election when the GOP took control of the
House and Senate. "I think Gephardt has run a
good campaign so far," said LSA freshman Collin
Schueler, the Michigan co-coordinator of Students
"But people are looking for a fresh face and
someone who can lead (the country) in internation-
al relations. The tone of the United States is tired of
bitter politics, and I think that's why General (Wes-
ley) Clark attracts a lot of people," he said.
But Gephardt has high hopes for a possible tran-
sition to the presidency.
"I know that I can do this job, I have the best
experience of anybody and I can do the best job,"
"The country can be a better place and I really
know that if I get the chance, I can get the policies I
have in place that have already succeeded,"

"While we have always had the
