Will Al Gore Be The First Academy Award Winner Elected President?
"He will not run. Negative odds. He's got all he needs. He's a Nobel Prize winner, which means he's being rewarded for following his passion successfully in a way that's changed the world. His passion was never politics for the fight, it was for the cause."
-- Karen Skelton, Al Gore's political director while he was VP (Via Salon.com)
If this is true, and I believe it is, isn't that nice to hear that a "cause" is more important than personal ambition?
I'm an ex-pamphleteer turned blogger who provides tightly-focused niche coverage of movies, TV, politics and kittens. I don't discrimate against people based on race, religion, sexual preference or your level of stupidity. Occassionally, I also blog on sports, history, Britney Spears and Abe Lincoln. My lover's name is Wally, and although he seems a little embarassed by this blog, he never really says so when he's sober.
