    The first ad likens the battle against climate change to U.S. troops storming the beaches at Normandy during World War Two, the struggle for civil rights and the drive to send humans to the moon. "We didn't wait for someone else" to tackle these historic problems, the actor William H. Macy says in the spot. "We can't wait for someone else to solve the global climate crisis. We need to act now."
  • The Democratic Tribes at War (Al Gore should drop out of the race)

    Exit polls have shown that the contest between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama has produced deep divisions among Democratic constituencies. It looks something like tribal warfare. Whites have voted, if you average the results from the states, 53 percent to 39 percent for Clinton; blacks, 80 percent to 17 percent for Obama; Latinos, 58 percent to 39 percent for Clinton; Asians, in California (the one primary state where they're numerous enough to gauge), 71 percent to 25 percent for Clinton.

    The Democrats have a bigtime conundrum. Both of their leading candidates are unelectable in the general election in large part because of Hillary's decision to fight for the nomination to the bitter end...and possibly beyond. So how can the Democrats get themselves out of this lose-lose situation? By calling upon the Mighty Goracle to save them. At least that is the proposal of several leading liberals as you can see in this HUffington POst THREAD titled, "How Al Gore Could Save The Democrats." However, this presents several problems. Even if Al Gore accepts the nomination, this would only ENRAGE...

    Senior Democrats mull Al Gore's nomination By Tim Shipman in Washington Last Updated: 2:23am BST 30/03/2008 Plans for Al Gore to take the Democratic presidential nomination as the saviour of a bitterly divided party are being actively discussed by senior figures and aides to the former vice-president. The bloody civil war between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama has left many Democrats convinced that neither can deliver a knockout blow to the other and that both have been so damaged that they risk losing November's election to the Republican nominee, John McCain. Former aides to Al Gore now believe he could...
  • Nobel laureate Al Gore may be Democratic peacemaker

    AFP ^ | 3-28-08
    Amid fears the bitter battle between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama could tear the Democratic Party apart, some are hoping a heavyweight umpire like Al Gore may step into the ring. The Nobel peace prize winner and former vice president under Bill Clinton is one of the party's 795 superdelegates who are free to vote for either of the two candidates contesting the party's presidential nomination. Gore has yet to publicly endorse either of the two candidates. But some believe his backing could prove decisive in settling the stalemate between the former first lady and the charismatic Illinois senator. Currently...
  • Could Gore Be The Nominee?

    It's clear that for either Sen. Barack Obama or Sen. Hillary Clinton to win the Democratic presidential nomination, they'll have to win the majority of superdelegates at the convention. But what if the superdelegates split right down the middle like Democrats across the nation? Talk of a joint ticket -- Obama-Clinton or Clinton-Obama -- might be an elegant solution to the problem. But what if Clinton wins the popular vote and Obama wins the majority of delegates? What if the next two months of campaigning turns so ugly they can't stand each other? Would either candidate willingly step aside to...

    Greg Laden's Blog ^ | February 17, 2008 | Greg Laden
    According to Newsmax, The Telegraph is outlining a scenario by which Al Gore becomes the Democratic Nominee for President. In the unattributed report from Newsmax (meaning I can't give you a link), Gore comes into play after Clinton regains enough momentum in March to deflate Obama's current surge. The Clinton camp reportedly believes that if Obama doesn't deliver a knock-out blow before the March 4 primaries in Texas and Ohio, Hillary could win those races and regain the momentum, with many superdelegates uniting behind her to preserve party unity. That could lead to bitter battles at the Democratic convention in...

    Guardian UK ^ | Sunday February 17 2008 | Richard Luscombe
    Al Gore, who lost to George W. Bush in the 2000 presidential election, is becoming a key potential power broker in the increasingly bitter battle between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama to win the Democrat nomination. Gore emerged yesterday as a possible mediator who could negotiate a resolution if the primary campaign ends in a stalemate and has to be decided by the party convention, where divisions are likely to run deep. The former vice-president, who was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his environmental campaign, is among a number of party 'elders' who plan to remain neutral in order...

    Hillary-Barack Gridlock? Newsweek Ponders 'Al Gore to the Rescue' By Tim Graham | February 16, 2008 - 07:57 ET Some see the Democratic race as slipping away from Hillary Clinton, but others persist in seeing the race as "tick tight," to quote Dan Rather. On his Stumper blog, Newsweek cub political reporter Andrew Romano forwards the bundle of nervous energy that is Eleanor Clift, wondering if Al Gore will come to the rescue on the second ballot of the Democratic convention in Denver. Romano's take? He foresaw global warming. He "took the initiative" on the Internet. And he knew exactly...

    There he was again on the world stage--in Oslo this time--celebrating his Nobel Peace Prize with singer Melissa Etheridge and actress Uma Thurman, the Hollywood hottie who called him "adorable" and said listening to him talk was "like watching a beautiful racehorse run." But Al Gore isn't running. Which raises the question: maybe Gore's gotten a little too adorable--too comfortable in his role as a globe-trotting guru. What about his own damn country? Why isn't Al Gore--Nobel laureate and enviro rock star, embodiment of the alternative history that never was, winner of the largest popular-vote total in U.S. presidential history...

    December 01, 2007 Al Gore is the Democrats' Best Hope By Seth Swirsky When you really think about the crop of Democratic candidates for president, it's clear that their best hope to win in 2008, is not even on the playing field. That current, non-candidate is Al Gore. He's the only one who can match the experience, accomplishments and gravitas of Rudy Giuliani and yet, the left ignores him. Do Democrats think that nostalgia for the Clinton years will propel Hillary to the presidency? More likely, when voters remember the scandal-plagued, triangulating double-talk of both Clintons, they will be less...
  • Al Gore is Running for President! They Just Haven't Told Us Yet

    I usually just lurk around out here. But, I have this gosh awful feeling that a worm is turning in the democratic party. That worm by any other name is called Al Gore. I believe Al Gore will be the democratic candidate. And I believe if the republicans don't get it together and run an conservative like Thompson or Hunter..we are gonna be toast. If you desire, please read article and let me know whether it's stinkin' thinkin' or right on the money. I surely hope I'm wrong!

    OAKLAND, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The movement to draft Gore for President continues to gain momentum as Draft Gore is about to launch its first round of television advertising on Friday. Funded entirely by contributions from grassroots supporters, the 30-second spot features clips from speeches in which Gore takes an early stand against the war in Iraq and exhorts Americans to take back their government and restore Constitutional authority. "I believe our success in defending ourselves depends precisely on not giving up what we stand for," Gore says in one of the clips. The ad will run for five days on CNN news...

Democratic Senator of Illinois Barack Obama put to bed that question from a voter who donned a t-shirt reading, "Obama and Gore: Experience and Youth, Obama and Gore: Wisdom and Truth." The supporter asked the '08 presidential hopeful if he would consider taking "the wind out of Hillary’s sails" by asking Nobel prize winner former Vice President Al Gore to be his running mate before the primaries. "I can promise you that as president I will have him involved in our administration in a very...

    If the bumper sticker of ’92 and ’96 (Clinton-Gore) divides, and we find Gore running against Hillary Clinton, Al Gore could not only beat the former First Lady for the Democratic nomination, he could win the presidency. Gore can seize this opportunity as the campaigns of Obama and Edwards are fading, out-fundraised, out-managed and outmaneuvered by Hillary’s campaign machine. Al Gore – the newly minted Nobel laureate – could steal the nomination from Hillary’s well-oiled machine. Here’s why. He immediately demolishes Hillary’s two main claims to the nomination: her electability and her White House experience. Gore has a proven record...

    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...
