Breaking: Al Gore Will Run for President

A lot of Democrats still hold on to hope that Al Gore will run for president again. Well, hope no longer… Grist.org has the scoop, which just arrived in my email box: Al Gore Will Run for President:

You might want to sit down for this: Al Gore will announce his candidacy for president this week, knowledgeable sources tell Grist. Now there’s an inconvenient truth for Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. Gore believes the two Democrats and Republican John McCain aren’t giving climate change the urgent attention it deserves, so he’s decided to go for the job himself, say Gore advisors who requested anonymity as they aren’t authorized to speak to the press. A lifelong Democrat, Gore will run as an independent this time around, aiming to show the American people that climate change is not a partisan issue. He is expected to tap New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, also an independent, as his running mate. On Monday of this week, Gore’s nonpartisan Alliance for Climate Protection launched a new public education campaign aimed at convincing Americans that climate change is both urgent and solvable. We’re guessing that will be the thrust of Gore’s presidential campaign as well.

See the Grist exclusive: The scoop on Gore’s presidential run. Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton can now kiss their chances to be the next president goodby. I predict an Al Gore/Michael Bloomberg ticket will sweep the nation.

    This is a welcome development, an insurance just in case Hillary is pushed out and democratic voters will have no choice but the two evils: John McSame and Obama.

    This was a really interesting post! I submitted it to Yearblook.com – you should go and vote on it. Yearblook is a competition to find each day’s best blog posts.

    Sorry – that sounded very spam-like. Just wanted to add that I am a Gore supporter and really liked this. (I’m not some bot sending out promotional spam messages – I really DO want people to vote for this at yearblook.com)
