    if he were to win the Best Documentary Oscar, and use his acceptance speech to launch an '08 bid?

    You could hardly get a better platform: huge TV audience, very receptive live crowd.

    Truly wishful thinking. . . but it's nice to imagine.

    I don't label the pills in my medicine cabinet, because life needs little surprises.

      So he will not be on stage when the awards are given out.

      The most you will see is an appearance on the red carpet and a camera shot from the audience after the film wins.

      •  I dunno, I could see them bringing him up n/t (0+ / 0-)

        after the initial favorable press, they'd start going about how Al is "Hollyweird's" candidate. No, even if he did go up to the podium, the Oscars is not the place to do it.  In fact, if I were Al, I'd stay far, far away from LA on Oscar day.

        •  as much as I'd love to see him & Tipper (0+ / 0-)

          on the red carpet, I agree whole-heartedly with this. I think Big Al should be busily in another part of the country (hmmm, could it be? Iowa?)and interviewed nicely via satellite!

          wanna draft Al Gore? Preorder your copies of "The Assault on Reason" today! Vote early, vote often!
