Adding more fuel to the fire over the speculation as to which Democrats will be running for president in ’08 comes this piece from US News’ Washington Whispers section (scroll down):
Is Al Gore coming back? If allies we talked to have their way, the former veep will be the next president. “It’s Gore Time,” says a political strategist and fundraiser who is opening a bid to get Gore into the race. Gore friends see his recent political and business moves as proof he’s preparing to run. Allies say that in speeches, Gore has found his voice to address domestic and world issues. And in raising money for his Current TV network, which targets the critical youth market, Big Al has built an issue base and donor network that’s competitive with Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton ‘s. Our source–a top aide in the previous Bush administration–is planning meetings with Gore’s team to push an early entry while Clinton runs for re-election in New York. It doesn’t end there: The Gorebots want him to pick Sen. Barack Obama, the youthful Illinois African-American, as his No. 2.
I know it’s way early to be speculating, but I wouldn’t rule out Gore as a possibility. No doubt he’s still seething with anger over what happened in 2000 and would love to take one more shot at being elected president. I for one would get a chuckle out of blogging his angryman moments
