If the Party splinters, could Al Gore unite it ?
Advertisements [?]
With all the infighting between the Clinton and Obama camps, will the Party be able to unite once the primaries are over? Or will it splinter into several groups?

Is it possible we could go to our convention without any Democrat having a majority of delegates? And who would swap off their delegates for the VP position on the ballot?

If this were to happen, could Al Gore be the nominee to bring the Party together? That would be the only scenario I could envision Al Gore being President>
