Should Al Gore Run in '08?
National Ledger ^ | Oct. 15, 2007 | JB Williams

Posted on 10/15/2007 10:50:20 AM PDT by PlainOleAmerican

Sharing the Nobel Prize with the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has given rise to a lot of talk about yet another Al Gore run for the White House. Nobody looked more uncomfortable Friday morning than Hillary Clinton, the current front-runner for the Democrat nomination, who clearly saw her own star fading fast as Al accepted the highest honor offered any international leftist.

(snip)

The Gore name was now tainted in the Democrat Party as a three-time loser. Though he remains a very popular icon to the polarizing far left-wing of the Democrat Party, he is seen by many Democrat voters as a waste of vital political resources.

Should he run again in 2008?

Despite all of the above and the fact that Hillary has a lock on the DNC nomination thanks to Bill, this remains a valid question.

(snip)

Today, a better question might be, if Gore does run again, should he run under the Democrat Party banner that has stabbed him in the back a number of times over the years, or should he run under the banner that really says who he really is today, the Green Party candidate who could actually put the Green Party on the map?

Should Al Gore Run in '08?

Yes. Definately. As far from us as his legs will carry him.

Short answer...uh...no.

Its not SHOULD he, its CAN he.

Sorta like the Jurassic Park question. Do you allow nature to take its natural course, or do you introduce a Nobel Peace Prize predator during a period that makes it irrelevant?

Yes, he should.

Or, maybe we can just recount Florida again and award him four years for winning the Nobel. /sarc

Sure. Make the Hildebeast spend more of that largesse she has. Besides, what makes her sick is the fact that she & others in the WH tried 6 times to get ole Bubba the Nobel and they couldn’t pull it off before he left office.

Me too, and I'm deeply saddened. A Gore run would be like a trip to the circus.

Plus, all the fireworks between Gore and Hildabeast would be worth the popcorn.

Would he really split the dumbocrat party vote? Not so sure.

If he does run, he should ask John McCain to be his running mate. That would be poetic.

from the article:

Gore need not be a Democrat to access these political investors. In fact, since they are largely disenchanted with today’s Democrats, he might have an even better chance under the third party Green banner that all international socialists hold dear.

Bottom line… Right now is Al Gore’s time. He can win and he can make American history doing it, under the Green Party banner.

Can Al Gore resist such a golden opportunity to realize all of his life long dreams in one last shot? Only time will tell… But he’s the man to watch over the next few months.

It seems so easy for Al to win. Almost as easy as winning as the sitting VP to a popular two-term President who presided over a booming economy and...WHOOPS!

I was worried until I remembered this is Al Gore, and he can screw-up anything.

He and Shrillery should run to the nearest funny farm arm in arm and sign up for a lifetime commitment.

. . . but Leavenworth would be a more fitting place.

“Should Al Gore Run in ‘08?”

Someone his size should really start off slow, and just walk. Also, a salad wouldn’t kill him either.

I disagree with the part about taking the black vote because he was veep to the first black president. He is so far to the left that he wouldn’t connect with black voters, who have other issues of interest. I think Hillary will take most of the black vote.

Oh please let him run.

It would be a hoot to watch the beast get in a twist if he does. SHe’ll have to spend down her war chest and his buffoonery knows no bounds. Who wouldn’t want to see the two of them debate? ;-)

Yup. You forgot about the entire American media establishment cheering for him, to the point of calling elections for him before the polls closed. 2000 was AlGore's election to lose.....and he managed to do it.

Then, in 2004, Dems managed to nominate the only person LESS likable than AlGore.

Now, in '08, IMHO, the most electable Dem is Edwards (I dislike him, but objectively speaking, I think that he's more electable than Hillary! or Obama). The Dems are trying to chase him away as well.
