    Because you are right.  With all the primaries bunched between mid January and mid February, taking out a few days to travel to Sweden to receive an award would make no sense.  I suppose he could send Tipper or children to receive the award.  

    I love it when you are right except when it dashes the small hope I cling to about Gore getting into the 08 race.

    Kudos though to the best President we had that wasn't allowed to take office.

    ... leaving us with the worst president in our history to virtually destroy our country.

      I mean, running or not, he's the only person I see with the experience to actually, ya know, run the country and clean up the mess left by this crew.

      I hate being right.  I really do.  But accepting the award on the same day as the New Hampshire primary? I just don't see him running now.

      process.  That they give their awards and January so that must therefore mean Al can't run.

      Thank goodness there really isn't a false black or white only choice.

      One, he doesn't have to personally receive the award.  Even Darryll Hannah picked up one for him earlier this year.  And second, maybe he'll just be able to pick it up personally if he IS running.
