Following up his unforgettable “The End Is Near” fire and brimstone speech from the ‘96 Democratic convention in Chicago, Rev. Smith today spoke at the 2000 Democratic convention in Los Angeles, urging voters to forget about Gore’s pants and focus on the future. “For only by ignoring the needs of today,” declared Smith, “can we fully prepare for a tomorrow that may never come.”
