Talking Points Memo: by Joshua Micah Marshall: May 14, 2006 - May 20, 2006 ArchivesI believe him when I read that he doesn't feel compelled to run. I believe Tipper Gore is deadset against it.
Andrew Sullivan just published an email from a reader who says it'll be Al Gore in 2008 for the Democrats, not Hillary. I could see it. I could totally see it.
I don't think Hillary is anywhere near as strong as she looks or as people seem to think she is. And Gore would be formidable.
However, I also recall that his daughter wants him to run again. Daughters can be very persuasive. He'd have my vote of course. If he runs, I'd expect a late entry.
