Well, at least for now, that lays that to rest.

Personally, I don't think he has the taste for that battle anymore, after the agonizing one of '00.

I have a feeling if a Democrat wins the White House in '08, he could be the next Secretary of the Interior or Secretary of Energy. That more suits his passion and his expertise.

Jesus that is a scary thought.

Talk about locking up public lands from use by the people.

Perhaps, but I doubt that a former VP and presidential candidate will be happy in a low profile cabinet position. Now, if it were the State Department...

Yeah, this is kind of disappointing !

I was looking forward to seeing posters of Al Gore-wearing a red white and blue Speedo and cape,and straddling an Official Global Warming Hockeystick.

(It would remind us of his environmental crusade, and suggest to the ladies that he had all the "package" they could handle.)

Oh,well....  Sad  Sad  Yeah sure  brokenheart

Actually, it's not. After Sec-Int's who are more interested in promoting things that destroy nature instead of protecting it, it'd be a refreshing change. The
Bush people don't know beans about that, and only cave in to oil interests, and electric interests, not keeping some natural beauty in this nation.

Actually, he'd probably do more to preserve public lands so people can enjoy them, and not simply use them for logging and expansion.

Not his strong point. His interest is in the enviornment, and he'd be an effective leader where I mentioned.

Then I'm all for it, because I'd love to see Hillary win just to upset people like you, and send the conservatives into a frenzy.  Big grin

And the way things are going, the GOP won't have much of a chance to beat any Democrat in '08 unless "HEEEYAH!" Dean gets into the fray.

Agree that Gore as Secretary of Energy or Interior would be a disaster, and that he would never take those posts. He was Vice President - anything less that State or Defense would be unthinkable.

Silly Al Gore, trying to wake people up to the damage Some People are doing to the entire planet's fragile ecosystems. After all! They're not *nature's* resources-they're *ours!* Any Good American knows: it's the trees that cause air pollution anyhow, and damn the spotted owls, *I've got a camper to haul!*

I wish we had a president who'd take on the Real Issues facing America today, like making hetero-only marriage safe forever and ever (amen) and maybe making sure there's a felony flag-burning law. That'd be keen.

An endless war'd be a major national plus, too. But ol' Gorey, hah, I bet he'd never do stuff like that.

If it were up to me, I'd send him as far as possible from Washington DC. I was thinking in the State Department under the scenario that our friend Falcon proposed... which is a waste of time, since McCain will get to the WH and Santorum will become the best VP this country has ever seen. Big grin

I believe I'd post a write-in vote for Hillary if McCain were running.

Ambassador to Iraq. He can then suggest to them how to greenly produce their oil, peacefully deal with their insurgents, and re-invent the internet for them. He'll also be able to proudly display the Oscar he's going to get for best documentary picture. And it keeps him out of whomever is elected Presidents hair. Even better, maybe Ambassador to Iran, he can straighten them out on their nuke ambitions without ruffling a feather.

Yep, the dems are going to sweep in the next two election cycles and then we'll find out what kind of super hero's we've stupidly kept in the minority for so long. I can't wait to see Nancy Pelosi as Speaker and John Conyers as chair of the house judiciary committee. I'm sure from day one they will vote for what they've demanding since '94, shared power for the minority!  laughing   laughing   laughing   laughing   laughing   laughing   laughing 

Fortunately I have no fear of the above since as I've said before it takes more than 8 years to destroy a country of this size and complexity.

I'm not comparing Gore to anyone else. I'm just suggesting that Gore would be a lousy Sec Energy or Interior. He's been the Vice President. Interior and Energy are NOT major Cabinet posts. Gore - like all politicians - has a massive ego, and in the unlikely instance of his agreeing to take either of those posts, I suspect his interest would either wane or he'd become a Cabinet troublemaker, stepping out of his lane.

I agree he'd be worse than Rumsfeld. I'm only saying that because of his ego, the only Cabinet posts Gore would likely consider are State and Defense.

And the 8 before that, and the 4 before that, or 12 if you want to look at it that way, or the 4 before that, or the 8 before that, lumping two together there, and so forth and so on. Of course the dems had 40 years to bankrupt the nation and some of their programs just might do that even if they are not in power.

My prediciton, the dems will not let Gore have another chance and he knows it. When he conceded in 00 he pissed off a lot of people who wanted to follow a scorched earth policy.

Please tell me you do not actually believe that.

IF the DNC actually wants to win this time, they need a good solid candidate. This is something they are not good at picking.

Evan Bayh, the Senator from Indiana, a VERY republican state, is the perfect man for the job. He and his dad Birch Bayh were both two term democrat governors of a truly conservative state, and VERY popular.

He is a powerful senator, and highly respected. So of course the DNC begged him NOT to run last time.....WTF?????? Here they have a democrat that appeals to both sides of the isle, and republicans voters in Indiana, and they don't even consider him.

He said not this time, he's in. This is a guy that could easily get republicans to vote for him, why do I get the feeling the DNC will not support him again? Its no wonder the the democrats have lost so much ground, shooting themselves in the foot so often.

Lets distance Gore from the most popular democrat since JFK, Bill Clinton.

Lets pick a guy who is on tape possibly lying to congress about troop activites in Viet Nam for obvious personal political gain over a democrat that won Indiana twice, the state that turns red on the election board first or second every single presidential election.

What will it be this time? Bring in the clowns.....
