Al Gore, our 43rd president in exile, should announce his intention to run for president again. In fact, he gave us a teaser moments ago during the oscars, but it turned out to be a joke. Here's why:
First, he won the popular vote in 2000. He was chosen president of the united states by the majority of our country, and if it wasn't for a controversial recount, and a Supreme Court decision without all the justices sitting, he could/would have been our president all ready. He won the majority of the vote against a canidate that was so much more likeable than he was in Bush. The biggest reason people don't run for president multiple times is usually because they weren't chosen by the majority of the people the first time around. He doesn't have this problem.
Next, he has been in the public eye, and would take the majority of the old Nader backers votes for his new green stance. This would help a lot, and the Green party might even endorse him should he get the Democratic nomination. He would get the liberal vote back to his side, and would be a great canidate.
The field is weak, and is begging for him to step in. Hillary is the favorite right now, practically by default. But who is there that really packs a punch? Hillary admits she says things to get people to her side, and people are a bit sick of the Clinton name in the news. Obama? To young, and is thought to have entered an election to early. McCain? Thought to be the great war vet that could pack a punch, but has weakened, and is now just a washup. Gulianni? Great name, and thats about as far as his campaign goes. Gore is strong on his postitions, and can out campaign anyone.
Please Al, do me a favor and get in the race.
