Need people for "Volunteers to Draft Al Gore for 2008"
Advertisements [?]
I attended a meeting in Birmingham last night and they have filed with the FEC to form this group already (I'll have to check on the exact name, but it's close). There will be three groups in various parts of the state -- Detroit metro, Ann Arbor and Lansing. We will meet once a month (on a Sunday afternoon) with all three groups and then most likely the individual groups will also meet separately. We will rotate the location of the meetings. The next one is scheduled for Sunday, February 18 from approx. 2-5 p.m. in Ann Arbor. I will post details once I see if there is any interest. If anyone wants to carpool from the metro area, please let me know.

Right now we are concentrating on getting the word out that Gore is the best candidate for '08 and getting people to sign on and to convince him to run. The meeting last night was run by a retired professor who has gone through Al's "Inconvenient Truth" training and who has met Al and Tipper and spoken with them. He is convinced that Al will run -- he will be very surprised if he doesn't. He's just biding his time, waiting to see how the other candidates pare down and how much support he has. He also really can't do anything until after the Oscars.

I told the group that there's a ton of support coming from the netroots for Gore and that I don't see where all this support for Hillary is coming from -- it's certainly not from the netroots.

Please let me know if you're interested in getting involved with this. We plan to bring some Gore paraphernalia to the state convention on February 24 and could use some volunteers to help with that.
