Gore as Hamlet
“I’m not planning to be a candidate again. I haven’t reached a stage in my life where I’m willing to say I will never consider something like this,” he said. “But I’m not saying that to be coy; I’m just saying that to be honest ‘” that I haven’t reached that point.”
But 2008 is very much a possibility for Gore, as ’68 was for RN.
Gore was born on March 31, 1948, which makes him only 64 in 2012, and 68 in 2016.
By contrast, John McCain is on the hustings at 69, having been born on August 29, 1936.
But McCain is more than a phantasm, while Gore grows less then that every day.
If Gore is serious about the presidency –in this age of new media– he has to declare as much and fight for the right to be heard every day.
You can’t win the nomination in 2008 playing by 2000 rules.
You’d think the founder of CurrentTV would know that.
