Oh Please, Let This be True
Every so often, we pray and hope that a rumor might be true: that certain city officials get indicted, that long lost relative may have won the lottery, that someone qualified actually got a spot/promotion they deserved. This is one of those times:
- According to Dick Morris, former Vice President and lunatic-for-hire Al Gore may have enough momentum to steal the nomination away from Hillary Clinton in 2008. Morris postulates that Gore has picked up enough credibility on the Left that he can make himself the frontrunner by just entering the race.
Go read the entire post at Captain's Quarters and surf some of the links embedded in the piece, especially the Dick Morris article. Morris is one of the architects of the Clinton presidency and is an astute political observer if nothing else. If he is picking up these signals, there is something to them. Al Gore would drive Hillary away from the centrist positions she is staking out and drag her into a bruising primary fight. This could secure a Republican majority for the next 20 years if Gore gets into the race. Karl Rove couldn't make commercials fast enough to completely destroy the democrats as a political entity. Run Al Run!
