Quote of the Day

Al Gore:
The fact is, this is a very bad situation. Our country has to find a way to get our troops out as quickly as possible without making the situation even worse in the manner of our leaving. [..]

This worst strategic mistake in the history of the United States. We as a nation have to find a way, in George Mitchell’s words, to manage a disaster. But I would urge the president not to — to try to separate out the personal issues of being blamed in history for this mistake and instead recognize it’s not about him. It’s about our country and we all have to find a way to get our troops home and to prevent a regional conflagration there.
Indeed.

thanks for the post, on my site I didn't mean to suggest I was personally supporting Bloomberg, just that with his money and smarts, he'd be a serious, serious candidate. I am ALL FOR GORE in 2008--put a link to your site on mine, btw...thks, MR

Hello Ripper

Thanks.

Ok. We had a misunderstanding. But, I do not think Bloomberg is a serious candidate running as a third party Independent for President. Supposedly having smarts does not always help to win an election. President Bush won an election run as not being the smartest guy in the room. Bloomberg or any other third party Independent candidates has no natural base or grassroots support. Who is going to do the hard work of turning out the vote for Bloomberg?

Count me as one of the early supporters of a Al Gore run in 2008.
