jefferson_dem: please help by contributing bios, news, and links for prospective nominees.

deadmessengers: Daschle has been hanging out in Iowa an awful lot lately - probably ought to add him.

ih8thegop: Dean has said he won't run, as has Al Gore.

Admiral Loinpresser says: It is true that Dean has absolutely ruled out a run in 2008. But Al Gore has not ruled out runningin 2008. In December 2002, when he announced he would not run in 2004, he stated he would not rule out a run in 2008. He re-iterated that position in an NY Observer article immediately preceding the 2004 election, cited below with the relevant quote. His status is most accurately described as a possible nominee in 2008, IMO:

“Basically, the answer is, I do not expect to ever be a candidate again,” Gore said. “I really don’t. The second part of the answer is, I haven’t ruled it out completely. And the third qualifier is, I don’t add the second part as a way of signalling coyness. It’s merely to complete an honest answer to the question and it in no way changes the principal part of the answer. Which is, I really do not expect that I will be a candidate. If I did expect to be a candidate again, I would probably not feel the same freedom to let it rip in these speeches the way I am. And I enjoy that. It feels”—and there was that word again—“it feels liberating to me.” Running again for the Senate or accepting a Cabinet position, he said, was also out of the question.
