This is from the Huffington Post on Al Gore’s talk in Boise.

This is perhaps a bit more balanced than the Idaho Statesman? Anyway that’s why blogs have grown. People want more news and all sides of the news. We were not getting it from the corporate media.

. . . and here is more Gore chants, Craig Rants. Boise Weekly.

    A very different article. And refreshing. The comments at the end were quite interesting also. Gore in ’08? We will have to wait until the Denver convention to see if Al even appears. Can he be drafted in abstencia?

  2. avatar Ralph Maughan says:

    In principle a party convention can draft a candidate. It used to actually happen. Since 1952, there hasn’t even been more than one balloting for president at a convention.

    So Gore’s chances are nil. Someone will have the delegates wrapped up before the Denver convention, and the same with the Republicans.

Quote

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."

~ Edward Abbey
