Gore running for President

The Wall Street Journal reports that Al Gore is likely to enter 2008 presidential race:

For former Vice President Al Gore, a rash of favorable publicity surrounding this month's opening of his movie "An Inconvenient Truth," and the growing political resonance of its subject -- global warming -- are stoking the most serious speculation about a Gore political comeback since his loss in the 2000 U.S. presidential election.

In 2008, that could mean a once-unimaginable battle for Democrats' nomination between Bill Clinton's former vice president and his wife, Hillary Clinton. To some pro-Gore Democrats, worried about Mrs. Clinton's electability, that is part of the appeal.

"I appreciate that buzz, but he's not running for president," insists Michael Feldman, a former vice presidential adviser who is helping promote the film and Mr. Gore's new book on which it is based. "He has been spending a considerable amount of time trying to educate people about the issue of global warming," and won't talk about politics "right now," Mr. Feldman says.

The demurrals aren't persuasive to some Democrats, including former Clinton-Gore White House insiders. "I do know that he's thinking about it. I know for a fact," a former adviser says. "He's talked to people about the pros and cons." . . . . .

Since the 2000 campaign, Gore has drifted farther and farther left and gotten more and more shrill. I just hope that the Republicans have a strong contender. On guns, he ran on a platform of gun registration in 2000.

Wouldn't mind seeing Gore win the dem nomination... I think he'd be easier to beat than Clinton.

All ya gotta do is start bashing Clinton as soon as possible - the time is right for a woman. What's the name of the tv show with a woman president...it's popular.

"I just hope that the Republicans have a strong contender."

She'll get votes from the right because she's a woman.

Oh I see now why all the comments are only from Republicans, the blog author has to approve them first, so I doubt this one will be approved but honestly I am curious as to what reality all of the previous anonymous people are living in? It seems so far from the truth that I feel for their mental capacity and all they can say is they want to throw up??? Something is definitely wrong here.
