More on Gore
The Sideshow has a round-up of really good links on Al Gore's speech.
You know, that speech was great and got all sorts of publicity and got me to thinking--it would be great, just fantastic, if they could find a way to get Bill Clinton to make a similiar speech in the early fall. Since Gore has a reputation as a bit of a stiff in the media, I think they were caught off-guard by the power in that speech. But they already know that Bill Clinton is a fabulous public speaker. The media would play the hell out of a speech by him, in part because it would be good, but also because it would be high drama to have an ex-President that arouses such passions in people to denounce BushCo.
Plus, Clinton always comes off as genuine and interesting and intelligent and articulate. It would be a great contrast to the Smirking Chimp.
It would be stealing Kerry's thunder a little bit, of course, but it would help him. It would get the left energized while sparing Kerry from going negative, which is the kiss of death for the challenging candidate. I hope the Democrats or even MoveOn is negotiating something with Clinton now.
