Journal klenwell's Journal: The Internet Without Al Gore

This is a question sure to stir up some reasoned debate, still I was wondering...

Al Gore takes a lot of flack in certain quarters for his (misquoted) title as "inventor of the internet". Nevertheless, he was crucial in the development of its infrastructure and its growth as a mass media platform. See for instance:

Question: where do you think the internet and world wide web would be today if the current administration had been in power during its critical formative period in the early to mid 1990s?
