There's been a lot of talk lately about Al Gore running again in 2008. He denies it, but listening to him in interviews I am fairly confident he's going to "get drafted" to "save the party from Hillary."
He's already re-invented himself to be the anti-Gorebot. He's back to the southern drawl and relaxed, regular guy Al Gore who was a victim of the media, consultants and his opponents portraying him as a stiff. See, Al Gore is really a likeable, loose guy. He's even making jokes now! "I used to be the next President of the United States" he quips as he promotes his movie.
Gore really has something going for him here. Unlike Hillary, he did not support the war and will not have a problem with the party's liberal base. His focus on the environment with "An Inconvenient Truth" has erased a lot of the perceptions of him from 2000...namely that of someone who went "scorched earth" after the election. He still commands a great fundraising advantage, so even with him telling everyone he's not running, he can enter the race late and make up the difference.
Some are even comparing Gore to Nixon.
Will Gore run? Would he win? Would you vote for him?
