Many of us loyal Corner readers know that John Derbyshire first made the “Gore to the Rescue” prediction back in May of 2007.
Keep in mind, his prediction was before the current Clinton-Obama near-deadlock; before Rev. “God Damn America” Wright; before the Iraq Surge was successful; before Michigan & Florida thrust millions of Democratic voters into no-mans land.
I’m increasingly of the mind that Derb is onto something.Â Let’s look at it logically:Â The policy positions of Clinton and Obama are nearly identical — both advocate increased government spending and control and decreased individual freedom and free enterprise market-based solutions.
Aside from semantics, their proposals from healthcare to education to Iraq are only separated by a hair.Â Â The real decision is who is most electable and likable for Democrats.Â (Cuz God forbid they vote by the issues and for what is best for America.)
So, with Al Gore having already successfully saved Planet Earth from Global Warming (TM), perhaps he can come to the rescue of Democrats fighting amongst themselves.Â And, since Gore has no problem bashing his nation overseas and adhering to the most radical and dangerously naive Leftist outlooks of the World, he would make the perfect post-Osama bin Laden candidate for the Donkey Party.
It is being talked about more and more by the Chattering Class…. so I figured it was post-worthy today.
