Gore Is Thinking About Running

That's right, he's thinking about it.

Is that news, as such? I don't know, but I'm sure glad to hear it.

His interview on Charlie Rose last week floored me.

"In our system, there really is no intermediate step between a final Supreme Court decision and violent revolution." - Al Gore

Did you see the results of a poll posted on Daily Kos on Friday? 20000+ votes of the Democratic base and basically 67% of those who voted said that they're either waiting for Gore's entry specifically, would change their primary candidate preference to Gore if he was running, or would lean Gore if he entered the race.

67% of Dkos -- basically the base fo the Democratic party. THAT floors me. While the Netroots love Obama and are true-believers with Edwards, they're waiting and hungry for Al Gore to declare and run.

As is said on dKos through the comments on this poll thread: if Gore enters the fray, EVERYTHING changes.

If Al Gore Enters the Race... Kos himself, myself and many others haven't gotten involved int he Primary fray specifically because we were waiting for Gore. I ache for him to declare... Yet at the same time, I'm fine if he doesn't declare. He's happy in the life he's leading now and he's serving the world in his global warming/climate change campaign.
