I ask for tolerance in advance from those who are agitating for an Al Gore Candidacy.
Last nights appearance on Keith Olbermann should, in my old-school ‘Practical Politics’ reality-world, slam the door on the efforts to get him into the race.
Why? Once again he walks around every question. He uses three words where one would be more impactful. He seems less focused than he did when he was championing the Climate Change fight.
He appeared to me to be, again, posturing like an active politician. At the same time he admits he’s bad at the political process it takes for the ‘moderate’ candidate, (his words not mine), to succeed.
Let’s take him at his word: He’s not good at retail politics!
The Democratic Party must give America a candidate who is truly excellent at retail politics. We need someone who upholds our beliefs and ethical systems…and can still win the damn race.
Here’s a short clip of last nights appearance.
