Brazile: Gore Won't Decide Till After Election

Donna Brazile, who ran ex-Vice President Al Gore's 2000 presidential campaign, said late Monday that her old boss wouldn't decide on whether to challenge President Bush in 2004 until after November.

Asked during an appearance on Fox News Channel's "Hannity & Colmes" about a possible Bush-Gore rematch, Brazile said, "That's a personal decision that I think he will make after the 2002 elections."

The Gore insider added, "If Tipper's on board and his family's on board, and I believe he'll have enough support from Democratic operatives across the country, he should run."

Brazile also said she had not ruled out working in another Gore presidential campaign.

"I have not made a decision as to 2004," she told "Hannity & Colmes." "That's because I am very committed to doing what I believe is important to my own life and future. And that is helping every American cast their ballots."

Naturally he wants to keep his options open until the last possible moment so that he can screw up any other potential candidates.

Just what the USA needs, a sarcastic idiot that will campaign by trashing W worse than the Arab media.

He should do as well as Dukakis this time around.

Gore is going to be our secret weapon. He's heading out to Iowa and New Hampshire. If ever the public needed a reminder of how lucky we are to have a republican president this is it!

By all means! Sit Albore in the corner of the room and let him ponder his futile obsession to become President, while an eager world concentrates on more substantive matters.

You mean Tipper and Karenna have an affect on things? Just when you thought it couldn't get any more pathetic...

What's worse is last night we had an article announcing that Tipper was on board already and that Gore was running!
Here we go again. Get ready for another protracted election if he doesn't get enough votes.

How many times does this make for him, four or five? I wish he would just stick to his inventions.

Donna Brazil has about as much credibility as Bobo Brazil the late great wrestler. Only thing is that Bobo wasn't a black supremist, white hater, nor a quota babe like Donna.

Do't forget this little pearl from 10/11/99 Salon Magazine:

Brazile said she has no problems reporting to Coehlo, and chastised members of the press corps for pushing the issue of the Gore campaign organizational chart. "Why is it men always want to know who you report to?" she said.

The question has drawn attention, however, because of lingering doubts about her "maturity" that date from her notorious 1988 comment about whose bed Barbara Bush sleeps in. She was working as a deputy field operator on Michael Dukakis' presidential bid amid rumors that GOP nominee George Bush was having an affair with a woman named Jennifer Fitzgerald. The press was reluctant to publish the story. So she said, "The American people have every right to know if Barbara Bush will share that bed with him in the White House."

Her remarks were a major embarrassment for the Dukakis campaign and Brazile was forced to resign. It may be for that reason that Gore decided to take full advantage of her organizational skills while distancing himself from her personally.

A couple of more short gems from Brazile:

Republicans bring out Colin Powell and J.C. Watts because they have no program, no policy. They have no love and no joy. They'd rather take pictures with black children than feed them."
        --Donna Brazile, manager of Al Gore's campaign 2000

"I'm a woman, 40 years old, whose birth certificate says 'Negro.' With all that laying on top of me, nothing scares me. My whole life's been a victory. This will be the first campaign an African-American woman ran to victory. And I've done it all with a combination of guts, brains and sheer willpower. In my situation you can't be as good as the boys. You have to be one more than the boys. I'm like the eighth wonder of the world."
        --Donna Brazile, Gore Campaign manager, 08/20/2000

Gore's not going to run. Tipper let him know some months ago that if he runs, the pressure will push her into a complete nervous breakdown.

A candidate or nominee with an institutionalized wife is not a very attractive vote-getter.

Wasn't he the guy that used to be known for the "coconut head butt"?

Bring it on!!! Al-Bore running is the best thing that can happen. Remember, in spite of the "Clintoon Economy", the power of incumbancy and the greatest Lie/Spin machine since Herr Goebels, AlGore still managed to LOSE in his home state, and blow an election that by rights shouldn't have been a contest. He's an empty suit and the leaders of the DNC know they'd be fools to put him in a contest that they thought a DUMMYcrat had a chance of winning at. The DNC liberals are Stalinists , but they're also very shrewd politicians.

IMO, the DNC putting him up as their canidate means they don't think they have a shot. They're just throwing him a bone to keep their hard left robots fired up until the next election.

That's him, saw him as a youth on t.v growing up in L.A.
Man seemed decent enough but he had a flat forehead he used as his trademark move the head butt. Like the present day Brazil, not to many brain waves to detect.

No, Donna, he's already decided to run. What he's waiting until after the election for is to come up with a way to tell you that YOU aren't running his campaign into the ground again.

Lose the beard, take a sip of ice tea, have a long smooch with Tipper, brush up on your "no controlling legal authority" talking points, wet your political finger and stick in the wind, then sit back and wait for November Alpha man.
