More Gore Bore

Oh yeah, Al is running.

"I have absolutely no plans and no expectations of ever being a candidate again," told reporters after giving a speech at an economic forum in Sweden.

Easy there, General Sherman, don't be too unequivocal. Is this new version of Al the "Dickens Gore", who like Pip is waiting to have his great expectations thrust upon him? Is Howard Dean Magwitch?

"We would not have invaded a country that didn't attack us," he said, referring to Iraq. "We would not have taken money from the working families and given it to the most wealthy families."

You have to give him credit; a swipe at Iraq and class warfare in the same breath. He's still got it. Of course, Gore would have put Iraq in a "lock-box" and how can you fault him for that? The Clinton-Gore foreign policy was such a resounding success, wasn't it?

"We would not be trying to control and intimidate the news media. We would not be routinely torturing people," Gore said. "We would be a different country."

I can't embellish on this forehead-vein-throbbing rant. There was also the old global warming riff as well which I am sure was especially well received in balmy Sweden.

Here is the best way to tell if Gore is running: his weight. In 2001 Gore could have had his own zip code, he has slimmed down considerably since then. If he drops another 20, bet the farm he is running.
