How About Gore/Obama?

If you really want to get the Democratic base excited, why not send Hillary “home” (wherever that is) and send a Gore/Obama ticket to the voters next November? I’m not even a Democrat and I find that a little exciting. With speculation that Gore may end up a Nobel Laureate, a draft Gore campaign heating up, and the refreshing fact that both he and Obama were right about the war (the biggest issue among leftie and independent voters) – why not? It’d excite the base, and would also be the most formidable ticket the D’s could come up with.

The latest “Draft Gore” ad, which ran in yesterday’s New York Times, said:

“You say you have fallen out of love with politics and you have every reason to feel that way. But we know you have not fallen out of love with your country… and your country needs you now.”

Well put. I wonder if he’s also fallen out of love with his party, too, which has been little more than a spineless unthinking blob since 9-11.

  1. While I sympathize with the sentiment, how about not waiting for a big shot (or even a couple of big shots)? When Ross Perot, who did get almost 20% of the vote in 1992, dropped out of politics, some folks [see http://www.independentvoting.org] renewed their commitment to grassroots organizing and independent movement building. That’s the hard work over the last 15 years that has made the question “Gore/Obama” even possible!
