Gore Slimming Down For Presidential Run?

Eleanor Clift speculates that Al Gore is secretly running for president, his repeated denials notwithstanding.

A leading indicator of his intentions could be Gore’s waistline. The theory is that slimming down will be a signal he intends to run. “He has lost a few pounds, and Hillary can read into that what she wants,” says a longtime adviser who declined to be identified discussing his boss’s figure.

It may, however, simply be a case of regression to the mean.

    To use the parlance of his present obsession, I don’t think voters will be warming up to him.

    But, pound for pound, he may be the best presidential candidate out there.

    Just part of Gore’s new campaign against global widening.
