Skip to comments.The Stars Align: Al Gore, Democrat Nominee
Posted on 01/27/2007 8:26:51 PM PST by Nasty McPhilthy
At this moment, there are three declared candidates who are considered front-runners for the Democrats nomination: Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and John Edwards. That rattling sound you hear are DNC nerves.
It isnt looking good for Hillary. Though polls show her as the early favorite, Hillary is sitting on so many fences that eventually shell succumb to splinter-shock. Her past as a radical leftist is bound to be dug up time and time again and used in comparison to her more recent softer statements, and Hillary will be forced to do more dancing than Ginger Rogers standing on a downed power line. A tamer and more moderate (read: fake) Hillary Clinton is also bound to anger the Democrat base, and Hollywood is already beginning to shift their support away from Queen Cartpetbagger. Why? Hillarys support of the war in Iraq and the softening of her position on abortion are only two reasons.
Hillary may well founder, which leaves us with the man in the on-deck circle, Barack Obama. With only two years national experience, Obama will ultimately be chewed up and spit out like a dog pill poorly hidden in a hunk of Fidos cheese. Some say Obama smoking cigarettes and having the middle name Hussein will be a big deal, but these two facts will offset each other. How so? Engaging in the promotion of Americas biggest killer will give chills to liberals, but this will be balanced out by sharing a name with an innocent victim of George W. Bush who didnt have weapons of mass destruction.
As for announced candidate number three, when voters hear John Edwards, hell be closely associated with John Kerry, and most Democrat primary voters will rightly think been there, done that. Clearing forest like a lumber company to build a home ( http://www.mensnewsdaily.com/2007/01/26/john-im-a-lumberjack-and-im-okay-edwards/ ) isnt bound to go over well with the tree-huggers, either. Listening to one of the reasons that health care is so expensive complaining about the cost of health care may not add up for some of the more astute Democrat voters.
And then theres the undeclared Al Gore, who remains a hero to the Democrat base. After all, Gores the only high-profile Democrat with experience at winning a presidential election, isnt he? Gores winning of the overall popular vote but yet losing the White House continues to chap Dem behinds, and many would love to give Al another shot.
Couple that with the fact that Al may win an Academy Award this year, and Gore looks like the man to beat in 08. Gores global warming film An inconvenient truth got two Oscar nominations. In late February, the Gore-loving, global warming fearing Hollywood glitterati will jump in their three-mile-per-gallon limos and head for the red carpet, some after burning tens of thousands of gallons of jet fuel on their private planes, to back Gore in his quest to save the planet and root for the film to emerge victorious, not to mention urge him to run for president.
Its been a long road back for Gore since his 2000 heart-break. Ever since, though, Gores been rebuilding himself via his environmental work. Theres are good reasons Gore often says that the most serious threat to the world isnt terrorism, but rather global warming: Gore hasnt made an Oscar nominated movie or written a book about terrorism.
Theres one way to tell if global warming is actually a greater threat than terrorism. If we start seeing Al Qaeda switching from car bombs and hijackings to aerosol hairspray and leaving an SUV running instead of blowing it up, then well know.
The Democrat nomination is Al Gores for the taking. Sure, there will be questions, such as why global warming wasnt such a big deal for the eight years Gore was actually in a position to do something about it, but this is but a minor point considering that the Democrats are nervous at having three firsts on their candidate list: A woman, a black man, and an ambulance chaser. If they ever all walk into a bar, theres a hell of a joke there.
Al Gore offers the Democrats a way out. Gore is tested, high profile, loved by Hollywood, and hes the only candidate who has experience winning a presidential election or so theyll tell us. Hes the safest bet at this point, and who else can be billed as most capable of actually saving the planet? I predict not only do the Democrat suits convince Gore to run, but that they even convince him to wear a cape on the campaign trail.
The stars are aligned perfectly for Al Gore to get the nomination.
He'll get an academy award....and be all shiny and new!
If we're stuck with a Democrat in 2008, better Gore than Hillary.
Richardson for the Dems is looking like a dark horse.
His daddy always promised he'd be president. He's entitled.
If you're a liberal, history began this morning. And you can rewrite it however it suits you.
It's conceivable that the Democrats could convince themselves to back Franklin Delano Roosevelt for a fifth term.
Like firing squad is better than lethal injection.
I wouldn't be surprised if Gore announces his presidential run during his Oscar acceptance speech..
Nixon's stars/planets are lining up for Gore:
Nixon: Twice VP, defeated for the presidency, sat out two terms then was elected President.
Gore: Twice VP, defeated for the presidency, sat out two terms....
Gore's biggest problem is that he's gone too far out on a limb on the issue of global warming -- which most people really don't give a flying sh!t about at all.
If you have presidential aspirations, at least make up a bunch of lies about an issue that concerns people.
Correct me if I am wrong but did'nt Edwards earn his fortune on a junk science lawsuit that has since been disproven?
Amusing article. I also suspect Clinton, Obama and Edwards will all fall short over the next year. Someone like Gore or Richardson looks pretty good compared to those three - relatively speaking.
Most people may not really give a flying sh!t about global warming, but Gore does not need 'most people' to win the nomination. What he needs is liberal moonbat Dem primary voters and they certainly do give a flying sh!t about that.
Al Gore's nomination as the Democrat candidate for President would be God's gift to Republicans.
Let's consider: who could he beat?
Mitt Romney? Nope
John McCain? Probably not
Rudy Guiliani? He's a nightmare candidate for the Republican conservative wing and would probably lose 20% of the Republican base in the general election. But he might pick up that many from the independent and Democrat side.
I can't see him losing either.
So, can anyone tell me how he could win? Only if the Iraq war goes from the current success to a disaster. What is more likely is we make headway against Iranian influence and knock them out by 2008.
Liberal moonbat Dem primary voters couldn't even propel Howard Dean to victory over a Frankenstein-looking goofball in 2004.
Maybe a little liposuction, some green pants and a lumberjack shirt?
