Gorementum

Are you sure you don't want to run for President?:
Support for potential 2008 Democratic presidential nominees, among Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents who are registered to vote.

Mar. Feb. Jan.

Hillary Rodham Clinton
36% 40% 29%

Barack Obama
22% 21% 18%

Al Gore
18% 14% 11%

John Edwards
9% 13% 13%

That is some serious mo for Gore, which will only intensify the draft Gore movement. Hillary looks anything but a sure thing, and Obama is a wildcard at this point. Just imagine if Gore were to win the Nobel Peace Prize. Those are impressive numbers, by any measure, given the current scenario. You would have to think there is some temptation, despite the consistent NO's.

I really, really hope he doesn't. It would be a terrible lapse in judgement on his part.

The press would tear him apart all over again. All the lies and ridicule would be reprinted, along with some new ones...

The US is so broken I'm not sure that, like a drunk, the country doesn't have to hit a rocky bottom in order to start recovering.

You're probably right, unfortunately.

Honestly, who would really want to be president in 2008? Having to clean up after 8 years of Bush and co? The mess in the Middle-east, the economy, etc.? I wouldn't want the job if it was offered to me.
