No More Gore!
Hmm, my "Tale of Two Als
" needs to be condensed. But Hillary! versus Big Al in 2008 should be a thriller!
Now, Al's motivation? I just sat through a modestly optimistic economic forecast for 2003. Doesn't mean it will happen, doesn't mean we won't have a double dip in 2004, but if are in a recovery, Bush will be very tough to beat. As a two-time loser, Al would have no hope of being nominated in 2008.
Secondly, under McCain-Feingold, head of a special interest group might be the way to play king-maker. Al as head of the Sierra Club, or some new enviro-group? Time will tell!
