No Gore in 2008

Bad news....for us. Gore probably isn't running.

WASHINGTON - Al Gore, the Democrats' nominee for the White House in 2000, says he has all but ruled out running for president in 2008, saying the best use of his time is to educate people about global warming.

"I haven't made a Sherman statement, but that's not an effort to hold the door open. It's more the internal shifting of gears," said Gore, referring to Civil War-era general William Tecumseh Sherman. "I can't imagine any circumstances in which I would become a candidate again. I've found other ways to serve. I'm enjoying them."

If Gore would actually say "I am not running" as opposed to this beating around the bush, it would be the most intelligent thing he has ever said.

I could't agree more, dan, bad news for us, the country of course. The man who was really elected president in 2000 isn't going to try again. Hey, if tricky dickie can do it why not Al Gore?
Could you imagine if the Supreme Court had not elected bush. How many more innonencent people would be alive today.

Hey, Kindergarten carper Kevin - In your dreams!

Gore is obviously refering to the statement: "If nominated I will not run. If elected I will not serve."

He does not have to worry though, as nobody is going to try and nominate him.

This could turn out to be the most interesting presidential election in decades. With no incumbant President or Vice-President running it leaves the field wide open. 2 1/2 years away is still a long time to go but media favorites Clinton and McCain both have high unfavorability ratings, creating the potential for both parties to nominate less well known candidates.

Personally I would like to see some fresh blood in Washington, perhaps a Governor that has not spent his/her entire life in politics or government service.

Kevin S. -

Gosh you are a pathetic guy. How many more innocent people would be alive??? How many more innocent people would be dead????????? That is the question. Thank God for our Country that we have Bush instead of one of you liberal coward's with your cut and run attitude. You couldn't keep the mosquitoes safe.

Kevin.....seriously - you are still harping on the election? Wow. Now THAT is pathetic.

The truly innocent are the unborn - WAIT!!!! That's just tissue. I forgot. I'm going to go raise up my "tissue" (that I've now given birth to) into responsible adults. And continue to love them with all my heart. I am so grateful that our Commander in Chief believes they, and our country, are worth protecting.
