On Al Gore


I believe that Al's experiences after the 2000 election have shaped him into a better man. Why, with nothing to lose and nothing to gain, he has come out swinging, arguing for moderation in our national discourse, trying to return our nation to her senses.

I also believe that those experiences have transformed Al Gore from someone who would have made a good president into someone who could make a fantastic president. For a comparison, look at assessments of FDR from before and after he was afflicted with polio.

That said, I doubt Al Gore will ever run for President again. I take seriously what he says about never wanting to put his family through that experience again. However, should he ever *ever* throw his hat into the ring, he will have my vote.
