Al Gore is smarter than the average politician

    I have to give Al Gore credit. He's running the perfect non campaign. By passing the debates and early mudslinging, he's setting himself up to make a perfect entry into the race by the first primary.

    What about Michael Bloomberg? http://www.mikebloomberg.com/
  3. Yeah, that's been the case since 2000.
    What's your point?

    If your premise is true, it would be the first smart thing he's done in running for President.

    Al Gore is so smart that in 2000 he had the equivalent of a two-foot putt and turned it into a quadruple bogey......

    The SNL appearances have been pure platinum.

    If he ever were to be president, that would play a part in it.

    Got rid of the "wooden" yoke on those two shows.

    Guys, he's just published a book which is a frontal assault on Fredo, "The Assault on Reason".


    The administration’s pursuit of unilateralism abroad, Mr. Gore says, has isolated the United States in an ever more dangerous world, even as its efforts to expand executive power at home and “relegate the Congress and the courts to the sidelines” have undermined the constitutional system of checks and balances.

    The former vice president contends that the fiasco in Iraq stems from President Bush’s use of “a counterfeit combination of misdirected vengeance and misguided dogma to dominate the national discussion, bypass reason, silence dissent and intimidate those who questioned his logic both inside and outside the administration.”

    Gore may not be the guy "you want to have a beer with" but at least he can string two thoughts together.

    Is there anyone who would take W over Gore again?

    It would be interesting to see how Gore handled the 9/11 aftermath. We could have been ripping him up for the past few years, or maybe installed him as grand poobah for life. Who knows. I wouldn't vote for him even with a gun to my kitten's head, but interesting conjecture.

    Kerry would have just had his wife buy Iraq. Ha!

    Gore would have been president if he won his home state.

    As noted hereabouts in the past, I spent a lot of time around Al Gore back in the day.

    I can't begin to imagine what the hell happened to him.
