Gore's Quiet Momentum

Though he has not even hinted at a possible run for for presidency in 2008, former Vice President Al Gore is making an awful lot of noise these days.


Nominated for both an Oscar (a real accomplishment) and a Nobel Peace Prize (a meaningless nomination anyone can get) on the strength of his global warming documentary "An Inconvenient Truth," hopeful Democrats cannot get enough of Gore, and are making those feelings very public.


The DraftGore.com movement, part of a new trend in politics where every candidate or potential candidate will invariably have a "Draft Whoever" website hosted by his or her adoring public, has announced that its online petition urging Gore to run this time around has already received 25,000 signatures.


"Gore's early position on Iraq has strongly resonated with the party base," says Draft Gore spokesperson Andrea Ronhovde. "We're seeing this in the petition. We believe Gore could raise legions of volunteers and large amounts of money in very short order."
