gore takes another big step toward announcing his candidacy

Al Gore just sent out an email to everyone on John Kerry’s email list, the email list he built while running for President in 2004. The message, ostensibly, was to push Kerry’s new book on the environment. The real underlying message, however, was clear. He’s getting close to announcing… Here’s a clip:

…That is why a few months ago I began building a movement at AlGore.com. Already we have grown to a community of more than 550,000. In order to ultimately succeed we will need to grow even bigger.

Today I want to invite you to join our movement to solve the climate crisis by visiting:

…I urge you to join me in working for change. And I urge you to read John and Teresa’s wonderful new book for moving and inspiring illustrations of the potential power of Americans working for a better planet. Together, we can create a better tomorrow for our Earth if we seize this vital moment…

He’s building up his base, with Kerry’s help… If I were one of the other candidates in the race, I’d be getting concerned.

    I wonder who he’d hurt most, i.e., which candidate’s current supporters would be most likely to move to Gore.

    After the film awards in Europe, then the Academy Awards, and after the recnt appearances before both Houses of Congress, what’s next? Nobel Prize, for which he is nominated. Whether or not he wins … and it will be AFTER the early round of primaries … he will “step in” and announce.

    My Gore/Obama lapel button says so …

    I find it a little odd that Bill Clinton and James Carville made such a point of saying Gore is going to run. What explains this? I suspect their ‘predictions’ are part of a co-ordinated strategy of some kind. I’m even starting to think this early Obama/Hillary drama might be some sort of deliberate distraction. How’s that for conspiracy theorizing? As familiar as I am with Democratic Party disorganization, I’m just not buying the split party act. I wouldn’t be surprised if secret meetings were held months ago, and that this part of the process is little more than a friendly ‘poker’ game to determine who the running mate should be. A black man and a woman running in the same year makes for some serious voter registration drives through the primaries. And the big states have aligned their primaries with one very important consequence being a nearly nationwide energizing and priming of the Democratic vote. With the possibility of the nation’s first black president being dangled out there, can you imagine a single African-American not being energized to register and vote in those primaries? It’s a similar affect with women and the possibility of our first female president.
