run.....President Gore

i have been listening to the talk about presidential candidates and i certainly have my short list of those who have declared.....i have been a big fan of President Gore since he won the election and fought all the way to the supreme court to serve.....bush v gore("just this once" )
if he would decide to give us another chance and run for president i was just convinced by Rachel Maddow today that would be a great idea..... and it would be fun to elect him 3 times!!

SHOULD AL RUN? Today on the show, Rachel gives us her take on why she thinks Al Gore should run for President. Not why he should win, just why he should run.
It's a theory largely supported by an amazing speech Al Gore made in 2002.

another speech i heard that moved me....... amazing!
this exerpt is from a speech that was presidental and breathtaking......

Transcript: Al Gore On the Limits of Executive Power
Monday, 16 January 2006
by Al Gore
.......A special counsel should immediately be appointed by the Attorney General to remedy the obvious conflict of interest that prevents him from investigating what many believe are serious violations of law by the President. We have had a fresh demonstration of how an independent investigation by a special counsel with integrity can rebuild confidence in our system of justice. Patrick Fitzgerald has, by all accounts, shown neither fear nor favor in pursuing allegations that the Executive Branch has violated other laws. Republican as well as Democratic members of Congress should support the bipartisan call of the Liberty Coalition for the appointment of a special counsel to pursue the criminal issues raised by warrantless wiretapping of Americans by the President.
Second, new whistleblower protections should immediately be established for members of the Executive Branch who report evidence of wrongdoing -- especially where it involves theabuse of Executive Branch authority in the sensitive areas of national security.
Third, both Houses of Congress should hold comprehensive-and not just superficial-hearings into these serious allegations of criminal behavior on the part of the President. And, they should follow the evidence wherever it leads.
the extensive new powers requested by the Executive Branch in its proposal to extend and enlarge the Patriot Act should, under no circumstances be granted, unless and until there are adequate and enforceable safeguards to protect the Constitution and the rights of the American people against the kinds of abuses that have so recently been revealed.
Fifth, any telecommunications company that has provided the government with access to private information concerning the communications of Americans without a proper warrant should immediately cease and desist their complicity in this apparently illegal invasion of the privacy of American citizens.
transcipt here
full speech can be heard here

so i will urge him to run and if he does i will go to caucus for him and try to convince others to as well.....and i will work like a dog to get him elected if he is nominated.(as i will do for other great democrats as well)

Al Gore as president would have us in such a different place on planet earth right the very least i am so grateful to him for never giving up trying to make this planet a better place and caring so much about those that come after us......
