Rosemary Esmay, after watching last night’s debate, wants Al Gore to come out of retirement so that there will at least be a choice next November. She offers rather unkind assessments of all the Democratic contenders except:

Al Sharpton – Scary, I liked him last night. He was funny. He stayed on message. The message “Bush is a gang leader”. But at least he stayed on message.

    As tactical matter I wish Dean would get the nomination. I’d love to see Bush Carry 49 states.

    But I gotta admit… Gore would be more fun to watch.

    Anybody seen a picture of Gore latley??? Did he drop that weight?
