This ought to muck the waters:
“Friends of Al Gore have secretly started assembling a campaign team in preparation for the former American vice-president to make a fresh bid for the White House.
Two members of Mr Gore’s staff from his unsuccessful attempt in 2000 say they have been approached to see if they would be available to work with him again.
Mr Gore, President Bill Clinton’s deputy, has said he wants to concentrate on publicising the need to combat climate change, a case made in his film, An Inconvenient Truth, which won him an Oscar this year.
But, aware that he may step into the wide open race for the White House, former strategists are sounding out a shadow team that could run his campaign at short notice. In approaching former campaign staff, including political strategists and communications officials, they are making clear they are not acting on formal instructions from Mr Gore, 59, but have not been asked to stop.”
Shadow team. Actually this was no doubt leaked to “test the waters” (most use an exploratory committee), and see if it rouses the uber lefty base.
Realistically although he is a “Rock Star” in some circles, to those whom know him he is a anything but. Frankly, though you could imagine this senerio. Since the twinkie crowd left feels that Bush stole the 2000 election, and I’ve long told you that the ultimate plan for the uber left is to impeach Bush as payback, a Gore run in 2008 would be poetic justice (in their warped minds).
The Commander in Chief at Work!
