As predicted by many in the media, former Vice President Al Gore won the Nobel Peace Prize jointly with the IPPC, a UN climate panel, today. Of course, this has fueled speculation that he might run for the Presidency and the Draft Gore movement is at its strongest yet, even pulling out a full-page ad in the New York Times.
However, given the number of times he’s said that he’s not interested in the White House, coupled with the late start he would have, which would especially present problems for him here in Iowa where organization is king, I still find it doubtful that he’ll enter the race. To be sure, it is still possible, but I’m not betting on it.
Of course, if he does enter the race, he will shake things up considerably, though I think I will stick to supporting Obama. We’ll just have to wait and see.
