I'm voting for him regardless. Sigh. So dreamy.

Yes. I went to one of his campaign stops before the 2000 election. Everything they say about him being dry and boring is totally wrong.

Agreed. I felt like one of those screaming girls you see in old footage of the Beatles.

None of the other Dems currently in the field have really won me over as of yet (do like Obama's vision, Richardson's experiences); if Gore entered the field, he would have my support as things now stand.

There was a slate thing about how he's not running because he knows as soon as he makes an announcement, the press will savage him, just like they did the last time.

While Nader and Kucinich have visions closer to mine, i would seriously consider casting a vote for Gore; I believe that, unlike any other mainstream candidate, Gore is absolutely committed to addressing climate change, health care and corporate accountability.

This was me. I was a senior in high school, and my mom let me cut class to go to the rally...

...and I am the biggest dork ever.

He's intelligent, high functioning, less prone to oversimplification and dichotomies, and pretty dorky.  This is exactly the sort of leadership we need.

So yeah, I'd vote for him.

Hell to the yes.  I voted for him in 2000.  And protested at Bush's inauguration after he stole the election.  And refused to take the Gore/Lieberman button off my backpack for years, which got me a lot of unwanted attention in the Houston airport once.

I had the chance to be in the audience when they shot An Inconvenient Truth, and I'm still kicking myself for not going.   :-\
