14. Al Gore for President Draft Petition
We petition Former Vice-President Al Gore to seek the Presidency of the United States in 2008.

Al Gore for President Draft Petition

Dear Vice-President Gore,

We petition you as concerned citizens.

This nation needs a leader with vision, experience and passion. Americans of every political persuasion are tired of the neglect, greed, cronyism, corruption, and gross incompetence of the current administration. Our next President faces the daunting task of putting the country back on track on many domestic and international fronts.

Our nation's economy, which stands at the brink of financial bankruptcy, requires significant course-correction to return to the strong and robust state that you helped build during your tenure as Vice-President. Special interest-driven policies of the current administration imperil the environment; your extensive knowledge and lifelong commitment are sorely needed in crafting forward-thinking, sustainable, and balanced environmental policies. The provisions of our social safety net originally designed to offer a helping hand to the neediest among us were severely undermined during the long winter of Republican Congressional domination, and they await revitalization.

On the international front, the unwarranted, ill-advised, and ill-waged war in Iraq (that you firmly opposed in unequivocal terms from the beginning) continues to burn financial resources, diminish our international credibility and, most important, take the lives of Americans, their allies and countless Iraqi citizens. And yet the outcome remains uncertain. Our next President faces the task of resolving the Iraq quagmire and mending our weakened international relationships.

Mr. Gore, as a man of stature, intelligence, experience, visionary leadership, and deep, well-deserved respect at home and abroad, you are uniquely qualified to meet and master the many challenges facing the next leader of the United States of America.

The idea of your candidacy appeals to a broad cross-section of the electorate, and promises to energize scores of progressive grassroots volunteers who will stand with you every step of the way.

We ask you to take on the mantle of leadership, and accept the myriad calls for you to seek the Presidency of the United States.

Thank You.
