Week-Old Draft Gore Petition Nears 2000 Signatures


Ahh...how we long for those days when these two ruled the land. The Draft Al Gore for President in 2008 petition which we started last weekend has roughly 1900 signatures. And we've received an outpouring of passion and excitement over a potential Gore candidacy. But there's been conflicting reports of what the former veep might do three years from now. "I have absolutely no plans and no expectations of ever being a candidate again," Gore told reporters recently at an economic summit in Stockholm, Sweden. But allies and backers later said he's just being coy, and is trying to avoid embarrassment. "He wants the whole thing set up for him," said an un-named source quoted by U.S. News & World Report. And since we believe Gore has the best shot at winning in '08, we're doing our best to send him a message.

    Sorry, I just don't want Gore any more.

    We need new blood. Gore has been President for almost 6 yrs now and he's still not in the WH.

    Conyers or Kucinich for me.

    AL GORE FOR PRESIDENT AND HILLARY CLINTON FOR VP...THE ONLY CHOICE THAT MAKES SENSE TO ME.

    I'm going with Gore and Dean, in that order. We need 2 men that have been against this war (from the very start) and are for healthcare, a balanced budget and the environment. None of the others can match this, much less Hillary.

    How about Gore and Bill Clinton... can a former Prez be vice prez?

    No, Anynoymous, Bill Clinton can't be VP. A Vp has to qualify as President in case the President can't serve. And I wouldn't recommend it anyway, on the groundss that this election is simply too crucial to risk losing on technicalities. And all this assumes that a 2-term President would even want to serve as a V.P at all, which is a stretch.

    I know that the counter argument is that these are strange times, and perhaps someone who's already been President might be somewhat reassuring, but I doubt that argument works very well.

    So far we only have 4 blogs linking to this. If we want it to go anywhere we need many more, especially bloggers in Iowa and NH.
