Chris Cillizza explores the chances that the former VP and current anti-global warming rock star will make another White House bid, here and here. There’s certainly an argument to be made for him to win the nomination–he’s more popular among the far left of the Democratic Party than Hillary and has the experience that Obama doesn’t. Cillizza reports that so far, privately as well as publicly, he isn’t indicating any desire to run–but he hasn’t clearly ruled out a run either, leading to speculation that either a) He may decide to run eventually or b) He’s just using the speculation to publicize his anti-global warming crusade. Given his name recognition, he has the luxury of waiting awhile to see how the Democratic race is going, and jumping in late. The possibility of Gore running is the biggest wild card in the 2008 race.
