Draft Gore for President?
Posted on Oct 12, 2007
Al Gore and the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change were awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for their crusade against global warming. Now, just imagine what would happen if the Nobel laureate applied himself with equal intensity to ending the war in Iraq. That could be the beginning of a thrilling presidential campaign.
New York Times:
OSLO, Oct. 12—The Nobel Peace Prize was awarded today to Al Gore, the former vice president, and to the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change for their work to alert the world to the threat of global warming.
The award immediately renewed calls from Mr. Gore’s supporters for him to run for president in 2008, joining an already crowded field of Democrats. Mr. Gore, who lost the 2000 presidential election to George W. Bush, has said he is not interested in running but has not flatly rejected the notion.
