Al Gore in '08


C'mon, admit it. Who better than him? He looks damn good after 8 years of the Oil Maifa, doesn't he?


From a post I wrote back in '05

This is unscientific.

Still.

I can’t help but believe that if Al Gore had been the president, and had been re-elected in 2004, things would be much better today. There would have been no war in Iraq. Saddam may have collapsed under the pressure of inspections and sanctions. We may have avoided the 9/11 terrorist attacks, maybe not. Had they occurred, we would have captured or killed Bin Laden and would have crippled Al Qaeda. The economy would have been in much better shape. There would be a budget surplus. There would be a program in place to make healthcare more affordable.

Katrina hits. Maybe the levees break, maybe not. If they did, rescue operations and relief efforts would have been done in a timely, compassionate and professional manner. Less people would have died. Less people would have suffered.

And the Republicans and their idiot media shills would be telling us that the country was sliding to hell on Satan’s sled.

There has been a lot of talk about who should be the nominee in ’08. Someone over at Shakespeare’s Sister’s place said "Al Gore," and at the time I hadn’t considered him. I now think he would be great. I know he isn’t perfect, but compared to the other potential Democrats he has the experience and leadership skills that are needed to stop the idiocy dead in its tracks.

Howzabout Gore/Clark? Or Gore/Obama, with Secretary of State Clark? Attorney General Spitzer?
Dare to dream, America!

I think he's waiting for Obama and Clinton to bleed each other dry, and let the Republicans fall all over each other catering to the Religious Right and other kooks, then then step in as the White Knight.

Let's elect him again, I say. And do it by a tamper-proof margin this time.

I admire Al Gore very much, but being the US president would hamstring him. He can do anything he bloody well wants to these days.
Sigh.
