200. It's always good
to talk to someone from the Carthage area. My wife and I went there and saw a Gore 2000 poster in a window on the main street! Talking to people who knew the "Silver Fox" and his erudite mother has filled in some of the holes in the three biographies I've read and reinforces why this family is so beloved.

I agree that he will run. The main practical problem will be organizing and getting votes in Iowa and New Hampshire, but I think it's still doable. If the Shaheens are still available, they would probably help him in NH. I have been to Iowa on his behalf many times and have met many people who still love Al and Tipper. Raising money will be easy because of the Internet and his charisma. Probably the biggest issue is the press. They are still mainly pretending that they didn't do the loathsome things they did in 2000. If it ever becomes widely known what really happened, the reputation of dozens of reporters will be changed.

Like you, I think he will run. He has always shown courage when there was a great need. And he knows that our planet's need has never been greater.
