    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."

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

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...

    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...

    A new poll shows former Vice President Al Gore’s entry into the Democratic presidential race might not have such a large impact on Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (N.Y.) after all. In fact, it might help to further solidify her frontrunner status. The InsiderAdvantage/Majority Opinion poll, which was conducted nationwide Friday evening after Gore was named a winner of the Nobel Peace Prize for his work on climate change, shows Gore taking heavily from undecided voters and the other candidates – not Clinton. Clinton registers 43 percent in the Gore-inclusive poll, which is a similar number to her take in polls...

    If Al Gore were principled, he wouldn't be riding around in a Grumman Gulfstream and heavy SUV. Gore is political, and has now been handed a big trump card. If Gore runs on the Green ticket he can seriously hurt (or kill) Hillary's chances for coronation. If Gore knows this, the Clintons know it as well. Gore already has executive office experience. Gore is an international award winner. Gore is not shrill nor hated. A run at the presidency will be a load of fun for Mr. Nobel Winner. He will be smiling as the attention grows and the concerns...

The buzz works to his advantage, so he's not going out of his way to stop it. At worst, it draws more attention to his favorite cause -- global warming -- and helps sell more books. At best, it sets the stage for a late dash for the Democratic presidential nomination if the...

    In what will surely be one of the largest ever, if not the largest, in-kind contributions to a presidential campaign if Al Gore decides to run, NBC Universal announced late last week that its networks will devote an incredible 75 hours of time on Saturday, July 7 to showing Gore's “Live Earth: The Concerts for a Climate in Crisis.” In addition to the entirety of NBC's prime time that night hosted by Ann Curry of NBC News, CNBC will carry seven hours of coverage from 7pm to 2am EDT; Bravo will show the concerts around the world for 18 hours...

    REPUBLICAN DATA Giuliani 29%, Thompson 15%, McCain 12%, Romney 8%, Gingrich 8%. Others or none of the above, 28%. Giuliani beats Clinton by 6, 48-42; McCain loses by 3, 42-45. Both lose to Obama (42-46 and 40-48, respectively). 61% of GOP wants to move beyond Bush's policies; only 30% wish to continue (immigration, war, etc?) Sample size was small: only 437 probable Republican primary voters. Article falsely claims, "When the survey reduced the field to three candidates, Giuliani's lead was more decisive: He drew 48% to McCain's 25% and Romney's 20%." In fact, this is only an artifice of having...

    A Gore candidacy? The return of Elizabeth Edwards' cancer changes the dynamics of the U.S. presidential race. Specifically, it strengthens the likelihood of an Al Gore candidacy. Despite the torrent of scientific media reports on the improved outcomes for bone-cancer patients that followed John and Elizabeth Edwards' joint announcement earlier this month that her cancer had returned only two years after Ms. Edwards' fight with breast cancer, the realistic prognosis cannot be optimistic. Should her condition noticeably weaken in the nine months before the primary season begins, Edwards will drop out to be constantly with his wife and two small...

    Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton faces a possible new threat to her presidential ambitions. Former Vice President Al Gore has again been entertaining offers to run for president.

"He believes this might present an opportunity to become president or at least try again." Sources close to Gore said Ralph Nader has sought to recruit the former vice president to run as the candidate...

    Ebert's Oscar predictions Oscar's in the driver's seat BY ROGER EBERT / In a year when the Academy Award nominations are more diverse and international than ever before, it's anyone's guess who will win best picture. "Dreamgirls" garnered more nominations than any other movie, but was passed over for both picture and director. But there are four categories that can be predicted with certainty -- best actress: Helen Mirren; supporting actress: Jennifer Hudson; best actor: Forest Whitaker, and supporting actor: Eddie Murphy. They have won almost every award, including the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) and the Golden Globes. If any...

They are fantasizing about what a WONDERFUL paradise we would now be living in if only Al Gore had become President in 2001 as you can see in this DUmmie FANTASY titled, "Finish the following sentence... If Al Gore were president..." In the REAL reality, it is like Paradise Lost for the DUmmies. All their frustrations can be...
