After the Walters show, Gore will undertake huge media blitz, in part to publicize a book he and wife Tipper supposedly wrote together (no word on who the ghoster or “editor” is). But beyond his attempt to make some money off a book is his attempt to turn around the Democratic establishment’s perceptions that he’s a weakened presidential possibility in 2004.
“He’s going to be all over the place, TV, radio, newspaper features. The hook is the book, but more broadly he wants to get his base energized again for his 2004 run,” says a Gore adviser in Washington. “He’s aware of what people at the DNC and on Capitol Hill are saying about him. He’s sensed the apathy for another run out on the road. He’s looking to turn it around.”
He’s also apparently using his TV appearances as motivation to lose weight. “He’ll have his wedding ring on when he sits down with Walters. He’s been working out real hard,” says the adviser.
