Time soon for Al "I got royally fucked" Gore to step up to plate in OH?
Edited on Thu Dec-09-04 11:09 PM by henslee
Call me whacky but I just read Mark Crispin Miller's report from OH (link below) and if OHIO keeps gaining momentum, I want Al Gore to be the face on COUNTING THE VOTES. Who better? Not Kerry like some keep pushing here. Al gave a great speech a few months ago. He has kept a super low profile. He is not running for office. As a former VP, he has boo-koo clout. It would be sweet poetic justice. Thoughts?

1. You are a genius henslee. This would be perfect. Gore could pull it off.
Wish I knew him or someone close, I'd harass them with calls and emails.

CORPORATE AMERICA controls the media and we get MANUFACTURED NEWS.
CORPORATE AMERICA now controls the voting machines and we get MANUFACTURED ELECTIONS.

3. A fantastic idea.
Gore has no political future anyway. Of course, he's just as likely as JJ to get reamed by the media for it, but fuck it, Gore would be a big deal: it would force exposure.

16. second that
If Arnebeck can make the case to him, I'm willing to bet he'll do it. What personal life? Henslee, you ARE a genius.

7. Great idea!
I think Gore likes to hear himself talk and would love to be the face of this movement. How can we get in touch with him?

12. I said this very thing to a friend yesterday! Let's Enlist Gore!
So, we need someone who not only can gain access to him, but someone who comes from a really credible position. Or maybe we need a team to approach him. Maybe William Rivers Pitt has a suggestion? I know we have other journalists and Democratic insiders who read this or pop in from time to time. Maybe we should start a post called "Need to Contact Al Gore" and keep it kicked while in the meantime, we research other ways to connect with him.
If, after he is located, he does not agree to jump on board, I'd be really curious about what his reasons would be....
Anyway, I think this is a great idea. Gore is perfect.

Why is Tom Daschle so quiet by the way? He also should be approached. He lost his seat because of the same criminal actioan...


Also, Bob Graham might be a good ally, even though he is leaving this month.

14. I agree but he is a great investigator and when he is on to something
he is really great. His book was terrific. His presentation at the Miami Book Fair where he read from his book was-- well, underwhelming.
So why has Gore not come out by himself? I keep thinking he'll suddenly hold a press conference or something. Why is he so quiet?

17. Probably because no one has ask him to.
He probably has been reluctant to step on Kerry's turf.

I think he might respond to the demands of Democracy being more important than other considerations.

18. Absolutely! Great idea!

Al showed so much power & energy in his anti-Bush speeches during the Kerry campaign - he was phenomenal & would be fantastic if he got involved in the Ohio project.

26. does he get to be President if the recount shows bush lost
Is't it his turn after all?

I love Al Gore, I don't think he should have to blow his political capital to win Kerry the presidency. I will never forget those 36 days in 2000 when no one but Harkin, Wellstone the CBC and a few florida congress people stood by Gore. Lieberman screwed him, all the senators screwed him including Kerry and the DNC screwed him (to say nothing of the DLC).
He put himself on the line in 2000 and he did it virtually alone. I understand the desire to hear Al let it rip. I'll bet there are some things he would like to have done differently during that 36 day period...but I don't think I could stand to see him sacrifice himself for a man who won't stand up for our votes.
