1. Here's my letter
Yearning for Al Gore

In question #5 in your article "Seven questions about 2008 campaign" on September 5, 2007, you state that "...but because Democrats are happy with their candidates, there is no real yearning for him (Al Gore) to enter." This couldn't be farther from the truth. I've been working in the Draft Gore movement since January of this year, and there are thousands upon thousands of people all over the country who are, in fact, yearning for him to enter the race. Even if they are currently supporting other Democratic candidates, many of these people will switch their support to Gore the minute he jumps in. The WXYZ/Detroit News poll of a few weeks ago that shows him in the lead when he is included in the poll proves this. Among the netroots, in particular, there is enormous support and yearning for him to run. He is the favored candidate on every major progressive blog and Web site by far.

Although the Democrats have a good field from which to choose, none of the current candidates have the entire package like Al Gore does -- each of them has some flaw. Al Gore gets it -- from global warming to the war in Iraq to health care, he is the strongest candidate on all of the issues and the most electable in the general election. As seen in his book, "The Assault on Reason," he understands what these past six years have done to our country and what we have to do to help heal ourselves and our reputation around the world.

We, and the world, need Al Gore.
