Al Gore Draft Petition
Christina Bellantoni reports that an online Draft Al Gore for President petition has over 100,000 signatures, including plenty of Republicans and Independents.
I bet it does. Indeed, an Al Gore candidacy may be just what the Republicans need to keep the White House in 2008.
It’s true that Gore won the plurality of the popular vote in 2000 and lost in the Electoral College by the slimmest of margins owing to a string of highly debatable circumstances in Florida. But that was Democratic Leadership Council, New Democrat Gore, running on the strength of popular affection for Bill Clinton and a strong economy. Somehow, I don’t see Ranting, Raving Gore doing quite so well, the baggage of the Bush administration notwithstanding.
