Gore’s Moment

October 15, 2007

As I suggested he might back in February, Gore now has won an Academy Award and the Nobel Prize. Being the recipient of two such prestigious award would give him an unprecedented resume for a presidential candidate.

Hillary Clinton’s strength as a candidate has taken some of the rationale out of a Gore presidential campaign. If Clinton were struggling, I could see Gore getting into the race. Right now, with Clinton having raised more than $60 million, Gore has too much ground to make up in terms of fundraising.

If something happens to Clinton, however, look out. Gore’s celebrity allows him to get into the race very, very late.
