Savior of the Democratic Party ....
Posted by: McQ on Monday, April 23, 2007

Oh ye of little faith. He hath not forsaken thee, but will return and save thee from thyselves. He hath heard thy plea and willst, when the time is right, take up the fallen banner and smite the enemy with his mighty sword of justice. He uniteth the green and the blue:
Friends of Al Gore have secretly started assembling a campaign team in preparation for the former American vice-president to make a fresh bid for the White House.
And he will say unto thee, “Who hath ears to hear, let him hear. It is I who come to lead you and am the way. Behold I bring you the ‘truth’:
Mr Gore, President Bill Clinton's deputy, has said he wants to concentrate on publicising the need to combat climate change, a case made in his film, An Inconvenient Truth, which won him an Oscar this year.
“Fear not”, saith his disciples, “for while he denieth his intentions at present, he will come forth and fulfill the prophesy. He will save us when the time is right”:
His denials of interest in the presidency have been couched in terms of "no plans" or "no intention" - politically ambiguous language that does not rule out a run.

One of his former campaign team said: "I was asked whether I would be available towards the end of the year if I am needed. They know he has not ruled out running and if he decides to jump in, he will have to move very fast.

"He hasn't asked them to do this, but nor has he told them not to."
But when the Pharisees heard this they were sore afraid. For the Goracle hath grown larger than life because he hath hungered not:
James Carville, President Clinton's former strategy chief, suggested last week that Mr Gore, who has piled on the pounds, could shed weight over the summer to make himself more media-friendly for a White House run.

"I wouldn't be surprised if he lost 15lb or so," said Mr Carville. "And I think if people thought he could get us out of the mess we're in with Iraq, they wouldn't care how fat he is."
The Pharisees plotteth his demise:
Vice-President Gore's allies believe that Hillary Clinton, 59, the frontrunner, is unable to win the presidency. The most recent poll shows a growing number of voters think negatively of her, in contrast to Mr Gore, who enjoys far greater popularity than when he lost the 2000 presidential race despite polling more votes nationally than the eventual winner, George W Bush.

The second aide approached by Vice-President Gore's allies said: "There is no love lost between Gore and Hillary. They don't think she can win and they're probably right. If Gore runs, he's got a really good chance of getting the nomination. And he has a good chance of pulling off the election, too."
The false messiahs hid their faces in fear of his emergent radiance and glory:
The most recent opinion polls show Mr Gore as third favourite to take the Democratic nomination, on about 17 per cent support, only a whisker behind Barack Obama, 45, who is aiming to become the first black US president, and ahead of John Edwards, 53, the senator whose wife was recently diagnosed with cancer.
The Romans watched warily, for the prophet plotteth not to render unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s but to be Caesar and a god.
A Republican said: "Gore could be the toughest Democrat to beat."
But the savior of the faith hath plotted his triumph carefully:
Gore-watchers believe that a new book he is publishing next month on the state of US politics will keep his name in the public eye. Many of his supporters helped to run the unsuccessful presidential campaign of John Kerry in 2004. But since Sen Kerry abandoned his presidential aspirations this year, many of his leading advisers have yet to align themselves with any of the other candidates.
And the multitudes doth cry out for him and flock to hear him and beg his blessings:
At least eight websites are campaigning to "Draft Gore" into the election. More than 70,000 people have signed an online petition, and more than 120 groups of Gore supporters meet each month around the country to promote the case for a Gore presidency. One website offers the chance to download a song called Run Al, Run!
All pray ... the Goracle cometh.

I had bookmarked this article to post an entry on it, but yours is so much better than what I would have done, I’m glad I didn’t.

Besides, I already had my shot the last time a clueless journalist got swept up in Gore adoration.

At this point a lot of the money and machine support are already committed to either Hillary or Obama. I can’t see how Gore could get into the race this late. If he does, the three way fight might leave the eventual nominee too politically wounded and financially depleted to put up a hard fight against the Republican nominee.

And so Gore joins Kerry on the bench waiting the outcome of the Clinton-Obama main event. If both are so damaged in the war for the nomination, neither can continue. The Goreacle and The Kerrychup with their Winkle Wilkie play books in hand, will, like Mighty Mouse, jump in, ready to save the day.

Wow, McQ. I’m impressed.

I’ve been reading you for a couple of years now, and I never knew you were capable of such parody. A tip o’ the hat to you, my friend.

Now, I’m returning to the main page to read it again. Only this time, I plan to use Raymond Burr as my inner reading voice.

Or perhaps a young James Earl Jones may be more appropriate. I don’t know.

I’ll try both and get back to you.

Cheers.

Heh ... I reserve it for special occasions and special people ... AlGore is one of my favorite ’special people’.

But you’re right, sarcasm and snark are more my specialties.

Try Tiny Tim and get back to me.

A Gore/Kerry ticket. That’s one way to satisfy the most fervent hopes of hardcore partisans on both sides.

On a related tangent, how weird is it (given what’s happened since) that Gore and Lieberman were running mates? That makes the all-time strange bedfellows list, up there with Jimi Hendrix opening for The Monkees.
