Robert Novak has a new column up in which he says Al Gore’s stock for a 2008 Presidential campaign is rising fast. This is attributed to the “success” of his film touting Global Warming. The film has garnered $18.79 million in gross revenue so far, well below the numbers needed to call it a “hit”. I would be reluctant to suggest, therefore, that his movie in any way makes Gore a viable candidate. It is strange, given the intemperate nature of the man and his peculiar habit of blaming America when speaking to foreign audiences. To say nothing of his maniacal rants on-stage at times.
Several major polls agree that Gore could get the ticket again. I have to say I love that list. Hillary Clinton, Al Gore, John Edwards, John Kerry … any of these would help America wake up to the fact that Democrats are far more interested in the welfare of their party and personal self-interest than in the needs and priorities of Americans. Any of these candidates would sharply remind us that there are people who woke up on 9/11, and others who want to pretend it never happened, and one national party for security and another for running away. By the grace of God, it seems America will again be spared from the Democrat’s notion of leadership. There are, to be sure, qualified and competent individuals in the Democratic Party, but once again the DNC refuses to even give them a look. Given the preponderant values held by Democrats these days, it is indeed a blessing from God to be spared their intentions coming to fruition.
