Should Al Gore Be the Democratic Nominee?

Could this be Al Gore's chance? Some Democratic insiders seem to think so. Congressman and Superdelegate Mark Tomasik says Al Gore may head the Democratic ticket this November, if this thing goes all the way to the convention.

Rep. Tomasik thinks that the Democrats will accept a Gore/Clinton or Gore/Obama ticket. I'm a bit skeptical of the Gore and Clinton reunification, as a civil war between Hillary and Al may have ensued during the Clinton White House years. And who knows, Al is probably over this whole President of the United States thing.

I have to admit, this bit of Al Gore news made me sort of giddy! Would this be the ultimate dream ticket, and a way to mend the growing rift in the Democratic party?

:rotfl: Wait a minute, Wait a minute. So this is the logic. Hillary gets the nod, it pisses off the Obama supporters. Obama gets the nod, it pisses off the Clinton supporters. So what do we do? Pick a THIRD person and piss off everyone! Gotta love the Democratic party. :rotfl:

Really? I mean...Seriously? Come on, people. While it wouldn't break the rules, I'm not sure that the people would be happy with a candidate who didn't actually campaign.

I could have sworn I heard Al Gore say at some point in the recent-ish past that he had no interest in being president now that his life's work has become more global or some such. But, yes, I would totally vote for him. :D

I'd vote for Gore if he ran for president with someone OTHER THAN hillary or barack.

I'd vote for Gore no matter who his running mate it. We need to get someone in office that knows what the heck is going on with the environment. By the way, a giant chunk of antartica broke off today. :-(

Al gore is no fool. He's never had more credibility than he does now. the minute he throws his hat in the ring, he becomes a politician again and people remember why they didn't vote for him. Winning the nobel prize was serious redemption. Why put himself through the hell of running for office when he can champion his cause.

As a conservative, I'd love to see Gore get back into the Democratic race. Only good things can happen with him around...

You couldn't be more right Buzz... I found myself cracking up along with ol Al, Clinty, and Hillary for sometime until I realized I didn't know what we are laughing about. Don't you hate that? Anyways, who's Al Gore again? Isn't he one of those enviro doomsdayers? I don't care for the dems this year at all... I am voting for McCain... old and true thats what I always stick with. Like my dog Frank. J

No on a Gore ticket, but head of the EPA yes, or Sec. of State yes.

i love Gore but everyone knows that the reason he is so likable now is because he's not a politician anymore and can be himself! he's an environmental activist and he knows that he doesn't need to be president in order to enact change. he's already done a ton to generate publicity for his cause. why get back into all the backdoor dealings and mudslinging of politics when he can keep his integrity and advocate all he wants for the issue that he's most passionate about? i agree that the 2000 election was stolen from him but if he wanted to run again, he would have done it already. it's too late for him to run and we already have two amazing Democratic candidates. soooo...as much as i wish Gore had been president in 2000, the time for his political career has come and gone and i doubt he'll re-enter the presidential arena. maybe he'll be given a cabinet post in the new Obama administration? ;)

I would love if this was true, but I have a feeling that it isn't.

If the Democratic Party really wants to drive their voters away, I think nominating someone who hasn't even been running over the heads of either of the candidates who have, and have won the loyalty of many supporters, would do it.

What better way to run a democracy than to select someone who wasn't actually in the race? Let's just pack it in and let the military run the country.

I'd love an Obama/Gore ticket...

Honestly I'd love to see him make it to the White House, but never like this! I mean, after all, his loss before showed us the pitfalls of the electoral college, so it'd be ironic and awful if he got the nod this way! Let us vote and choose who we want darnit!

Pop, it would only happen if going into the convention neither Obama or Hillary locked the ticket. At that point, since there is no clear winner, they could go to broker a deal that involved Gore, but realistically, I can't see why if the two were to broker a deal, they would write themselves out of the ticket in place of someone who wasn't even running. Is it possible? Yes. Likely? No.
