9 Replies to “President Gore”

  1. I can’t think of another politician who’s been MORE popular after a “defeat” than Al Gore.
    Talk about a reinvention.

    I’d vote for him in 2008, but what Democrat is going to be brave enough to want to inherit this mess Bush has gotten us into?

  2. I agree, this was pretty funny…

    But hold your nominating horses. Ya know how Bush’s approval rating is at 29%? Gore’s is even LOWER.

    So, mayhaps we should be looking for someone else. Let Gore focus on his TV station. And his wife.

  3. I saw the results of that poll. 33% of the respondents were either undecided or did not know. His unfavorable was at 39%, which, while not great, is manageable. By comparison, Bush has a 55% unfavorable.

    My read of the results is that most people only have a vague recollection as to what it was like with Gore as VP and candidate and probably know nothing about how he has changed since 2000. It will be very interesting to see what happens to the public perception once his movie comes out.

  4. Hell, Bob Dole was pretty affable after his defeat in ’96. Guess once the party pressure is off, you can be yourself.

  5. I liked Bob Dole as a senator. I didn’t always agree with him, but I always knew he was thoughtful in his positions, and his opinions were always based on careful consideration of the law and what was best for the country. I didn’t think much of him as a presidential candidate, but obviously most other people didn’t, either.

    It’s sad when you’re longing for the “good ol’ days” of a senator making Viagra ads, isn’t it?
