        ... combines the two things most needed following this disaster of a presidency - gravitas and experience (Gore) and greatest upside potential (Obama).

        If elected, Gore/Obama could transform this country's politics.  See the article that I cited in this comment

        As for Democrats, though it might resonate as an inconvenient truth for current contenders, 2008 surely is the year for Gore.  He offers hefty experience as a former U.S. representative, senator and vice president.  Unlike some other Democratic candidates, he would bring a unifying influence.  And, despite his role in the Clinton administration, Gore now freely pursues his own agenda -- with an Oscar lighting the way.  Given his early trumpeting of the Internet and concern about global climate change, he, too, would be a candidate with a finger on the future.

        For the No. 2 slot on the Democrats' dream team, U.S. Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois stands out.  That arrangement could generate excitement among those who view his presidential ambitions as premature.  Obama eloquently takes a position in the vanguard of a changing, more diverse America and, thus, also has his finger on the future.

        Gore/Obama '08!

        A riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma

          I feel they could be very, very good for each other. They might reach separate audiences, inspiring both - not to say there wouldn't be a lot of overlap, but their styles are very different, thus it seems reasonable to conclude there would be people fired up by one or the other. Add everyone together, and the possibility exists for a genuinely overwhelming majority of the vote, not just another tip on the see-saw.

          Gore has extraordinary depth in certain crucial areas. Obama clearly can pull on people's hopes for a better tomorrow. That's surely as much of a dream ticket as anyone could design.

          And gods, wouldn't it be wonderful to have a president of knowledge, reason, and depth again? Wouldn't that be a pairing that could be respected, not because of their political titles, but their abilities?
