Gore 2008 Buzz Is Growing
Posted on May 17, 2006
As Al Gore crisscrosses the country to promote his new global warming movie, Democrats are speculating with feverish intensity about the former veep’s political future.
Update: Arianna appears to be on board, and even Franklin Foer of The New Republic is gushing about Gore’s movie.
WASHINGTON - Al Gore is running to California, New York, Utah, Washington, France and points in between to promote “An Inconvenient Truth,” a film chronicling his elaborate slide shows to educate people about global warming.
But is the former vice president running for president again?
The answer, he says, is no. Some Democrats are not so sure.
“I’m a recovering politician on about Step 9,” Gore told The Associated Press. “But I’m on a different kind of campaign now ? to persuade people to take action to solve the climate crisis, and it’s always easier when you’re focused on one thing.”
Al Gore delivers his lecture on the dangers of global warming—a lecture that longtime Quentin Tarantino-collaborator Lawrence Bender made into the upcoming film, “An Inconvenient Truth.”
