Telegraph reported Former Gore aides now believe he could emerge as a compromise candidate acceptable to both camps at the party's convention in Denver during the last week of August. Two former Gore campaign officials have told The Sunday Telegraph that a scenario first mapped out by members of Mr Gore's inner circle last May now has a sporting chance of coming true.
Tose officials probably also believe in Global Warming and the Easter Bunny.
... If neither Mr Obama nor Mrs Clinton has the 2,025 delegates needed to win the nomination, and if both appear unable to beat Mr McCain, under one scenario a group of about 100 party elders - the "super-delegates" - could sit out the first ballot in Denver, preventing either candidate winning outright,
That should make for some interesting TV coverage.
and then offer Mr Gore the nomination for the good of the party. Tim Mahoney, a Democrat congressman from Florida, said last week: "If it goes into the convention, don't be surprised if someone different is at the top of the ticket." This suggests the party would accept a Gore-Clinton or a Gore-Obama pairing.
Blacks are going to be upset if the super delegates take the nomination away from Obama, and give it to a White Woman, just think what they will say if they give it to a White Man. And Hillary's people are so eager for a woman to win, why are they going to prefer a white man to a black man?
Following a brief flurry of speculation that he might jump into the race last year, Mr Gore claimed he had "fallen out of love" with politics,
That is because he can make more money selling carbon credits t gullible people.
but he has pointedly refused to rule out another tilt at the White House and said that the only job in public life that interests him is the presidency.

Jules Crittenden blogged I think my favorite part … aside from the whole thing, that is … is the idea that replacing the Hero of Tuzla and the change-hoping bigot buddy with an exaggerating doomsayer somehow gets this train back on the rails.

Michael van der Galien blogged “I invented the Internet and I won the Nobel Peace Prize (which I also may have invented); elect me president!” Yeah, that’ll work.

Gaius blogged So, the two candidates would cheerfully surrender to a man who has not lifted a finger during the entire campaign for either of them or for the Democratic party itself. Did Gore withhold his endorsement hoping for the nomination? Quite possibly. If I were a backer of either of the two candidates, I would be furious if a bunch of party insiders threw my choice under the bus for such a cold, calculating and selfish man. Gore has enough baggage - and enough history of America-bashing remarks in the years since he lost the 2000 election to make his candidacy very iffy at best - especially with only a couple of months to do it in.

I can't see either Obama or Clinton agreeing to be the second banana on the ticket, either. So a Gore candidacy would likely be seen as even more of a smoke-filled room deal. I think the Democrats have actually found a scenario that makes it even worse for them than it already is, bless them.

Gateway Pundit blogged It looks like Al Gore has already saved the planet from warming as evidenced by the record snow and low temperatures this past year and scientific data proving the planet is cooling. Halleluiah.

Mark R. Levin blogged what about all the excitement over the possibility of the first woman or first black president? That goes down the tubes with the nomination of Gore. It seems to me that a Gore nomination creates serious problems for the Democrat Party. So, I would encourage the Democrats to do it.
