Al Gore and the Presidency

by William Yeatman on October 15, 2007

If Al Gore harbors Presidential ambitions, he would be insane to run in ’08. In the parlance of campaign operatives, Al Gore ‘owns’ the global warming issue. Just as Google has become synonymous with surfing the web, Al Gore is coterminous with climate change.  Which is why patience will pay for Gore. When everything under the sun is blamed on global warming (the heat, the cold, droughts, monsoons, disappearing lakes, rising sea levels, etc, etc), Al gets to stay on everyone’s radar, forever.


And what Presidential aspirant wouldn’t be well positioned to run after 4 (or 8?) years of near-continuous, fawning media coverage?
