48. I think of it as winning the first leg of the, "Triple Crown"...
1. An Oscar for, "An Inconvenient Truth"

2. The 2007 Nobel Peace Prize

3. The Presidency in 2008

I know that there haven't been too many Triple Crown winners in horse racing. But in a political sense there's never been ONE potential winner of such a "title". Al is a thoroughbred and has the blood lines and intelligence to be the first. Here's hoping he goes through with it. His country needs him now more than ever. Hey, a guy's gotta' dream! :shrug:
