Could it be?
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.
Two members of Mr Gore’s staff from his unsuccessful attempt in 2000 say they have been approached to see if they would be available to work with him again.
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.
But, aware that he may step into the wide open race for the White House, former strategists are sounding out a shadow team that could run his campaign at short notice. In approaching former campaign staff, including political strategists and communications officials, they are making clear they are not acting on formal instructions from Mr Gore, 59, but have not been asked to stop.
It may just be:
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.
Gore, at this point, is a wild card. He’s been polling third depending on the source however an announcement could bump that to second.
Besides his crackpot global warming movie, what else has the man done? He’s got huge Hollywood backing because they all love supporting fraudulent environmental issues. However, what of the American people?
Gore seems like the boring Democratic candidate. Obama and Hillary are exciting and flashy! Gore is the great stone face.
