The Democrats could do worse, a lot worse, than looking at Al Gore for a run in 2008. What with a thoughtful new documentary in which he actually speaks his mind, rather than trying to be everything to everyone. He'd be a less polarizing and perhaps more principled candidate than Hilary Clinton. I'm not sure if John Kerry is thinking of running again, but it would be foolish to discount him as a candidate. Now what do the Republicans have up there sleeve ("What act of unmitigated evil shall we plan this evening, gentlemen?" to paraphrase C. Monty Burns): Bush Jr Jr, and McCain. The latter's a real prospect to be sure.
