Suddenly cool Al Gore looks like a good choice

Al Gore could become the only man to win an Oscar, a Nobel Prize and his party's presidential nomination within a span of 12 months.

He already has collected an Oscar for his global-warming documentary ``An Inconvenient Truth.'' (Actually, that's two Oscars, if you count best song.) He's been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by an admiring Norwegian lawmaker. But to have a shot at the trifecta -- California's presidential primary will be 11 months from tomorrow -- Gore will have to declare himself a candidate for president.

We hope he goes for it.

No doubt , the Klinton machine will grind Obama up.
I think Algore would be harder for the Klintons to deal with , which is why I hope he gets in .

Of course he's a phoney. But he's contending with Hillary and Obama and John-boy Edwards. Why should he be any different from the competition?

Nah. Algore would never go for VP again. Try this: Gore/Richardson.

only the far moonbat left would vote for the guy.

Don't count on that. There's a lot of otherwise normal sensible people out there whose eyes glaze over when you start to talk about GW or the environment in general. And Algore has a reservoir of credibility on this, even though it's not rational.

I have Algore as even money for the nomination, at this stage, fully expecting Obama and hillary to chew each other up in the meantime.

Of course, grinding Algore would take several industrial size meat grinders to even make a dent on his huge carcass. The Klintoons will have to get Ron Popeil make new kitchen grinder. Just set it and forget it.

Actually, ZERO Oscars because neither Oscar went to him, and it wasn't even HIS documentary, he just starred in it (and didn't get nominated as an actor).

Gore is the perfect 11th hour candidate for the Rats. If he would deign to be an "experienced VP" for Obama, the ticket would be very formidable.

Here's my line-up of reasons on why Al Gore has a very good chance of being the next Rat presidential nominee or Rat VP nominee:

1. He's the only Rat who's consistently been giving the moonbat base the warm and fuzzies.

2. He's much more likeable than the Witch.

3. He's loved by Hollywierd, which means money---big money. Hollywierd only likes the Klintoons until they see a viable alternative.

4. He's a victim. Remember, from their point of view, he got robbed in 2000. There is NO greater passion among Rats than when they can cast themselves as victim.

5. He's the good stuff (from their point of view) about the Clinton administration, while also--importantly---he's the anti-Clinton, especially the anti-Hillary.

6. He's consistently and shrilly been against the war. More than the Hildabeast can say.

7. It was his turn in 2000 and nothing has changed that.

8. He's a veteran.

9. He's gained world Lib favor with his global warming baloney.

I think the GOP should be prepared for this turn of events.

Nope.

It'll be Obama/Gore or Gore/Obama, with MRS BILL CLINTON consigned to the ashheap of primary history.

Gore is the anti-Hillary. That's why he's likely to be the candidate.

Gore/Obama or Obama/Gore will knock MRS BILL CLINTON on her backside.

I could definitely see Al Gore going for VP again, if he ran with Obama.

First, he might calculate that's the best way to win.

Second, they would present it as though they were "co-Presidents"---hey, it worked for the Toons. They'd say they have Obama "fresh, young, new-to-Washington perspective" and Gore's experience in the White House, blah blah blah.

Third, if it takes being VP again to finally strike a personal blow against the Toons (and you gotta believe Algore harbors some mighty fine resentment against those two for Bubba's ridiculous conduct which, um, *complicated* Al's best chance at winning the presidency in 2000), he might just do it.

Fourth, Al Gore can claim that one of his most cherished causes in global warming and that, in the role of VP, he would have more flexability to continue his "important" work in that area, all the while President Obama could benefit from his "experience."

A VP spot behind Gore might be a coveted position for one of the candidates. He does not look healthy. There's something about the way that he ballooned up which has now given him a bloated look. It looks like he's in line for a heart attack or severely high blood pressure issues. It could just be so many of the great pics here, but he doesn't look like he would last through a full campaign starting this far out, or if he did, you'd better pay attention to who's in the line of succession if he wins.
