So...Will He Run?

Here's a particularly balanced and unbiased look at the possibility of Al Gore running for the Democratic nomination: Huffington Post. My personal opinion is that Gore is being honest when he says that he really doesn't want to run. However, I also believe that Al Gore is deeply patriotic. Knowing how much this country needs his leadership, I think that at some point his patriotism will compel him to enter the race.

Bush Owes Troops An Apology--Not Kerry

I intended this blog to be only about Al Gore stuff. However, I can't resist linking to this Keith Olbermann editorial comment about the flap over John Kerry's recent "stuck in Iraq" comments. This is a powerful editorial that cuts to the heart of our "Bush problem."

A Signal from Gore?

Political observers at the Washington Post believe that Al Gore may be subtly signaling that he is considering a presidential run in 2008. They contend that the timing of the release of his newest book next May is no coincidence. The book's topic is the absence of solid reasoning that we see in the arena of America's top-level political decision-making.

Latest CNN Poll

A CNN poll published September 7 shows that Al Gore is running a strong second to Hillary in presidential nominee preference among poll participants identifying themselves as Democrats. Hillary is the choice of 36% while Gore pulls 20%. Nobody else got more than 11%. Bear in mind that everyone knows that Hillary is going to run, but Gore managed to get 20% while repeatedly stating that he has no current plans to throw his hat in the ring. What if he announced that he's changed his mind? Perhaps more importantly, 41% of these Democrats answered that they would only vote for a candidate who had opposed the Iraq war at its inception in 2003. How is Hillary going to win a national election without being able to count on that 40% of Democratic voters?
