    I was holding out hope for Gore to step in at some point and claim what was rightfully his in 2000.  But then again, he may be able to do more good outside of the White House.  Hopefully.

      I can't see how that is possible.  To wit: you could say with some accuracy that his global warming PR coup last year raised global consciousness on the issue several orders of magnitude; yet global warming is near the bottom of US voters' concerns right now, just a few months after he made that hurculean push.  If he had decided to run, global warming would be at the top of voters' concerns by dent of his passion on the issue.

      But I ain't Al, so what can I say but "too bad?"
