Team Gore

By Michael J.W. Stickings

From The Sunday Telegraph:

Friends of Al Gore have secretly started assembling a campaign team in preparation for the former American vice-president to make a fresh bid for the White House...

[A]ware that he may step into the wide open race for the White House, former strategists are sounding out a shadow team that could run his campaign at short notice. In approaching former campaign staff, including political strategists and communications officials, they are making clear they are not acting on formal instructions from Mr Gore, 59, but have not been asked to stop.

Well, okay. Even if true, this doesn't necessarily mean anything. A lot of people -- myself included -- want Gore to run, and it is hardly surprising that some of his unnamed "former strategists" (a bit vague, no?) are actively preparing for him to do so. Is Gore behind it? No, perhaps not, but it also wouldn't be surprising if he is, at the present time, passively keeping his options open. (America needs him. The world needs him. Run, Mr. Gore, run!)

In other words, there's no reason to get excited. Yet.
