Al Gore is "gaining steam" in the presidential race, stated a report last night from Fox News. Watch Peter Doocy's report on Bret Baier's Special Report:
"With Hillary Clinton's recent troubles comes renewed speculation about who might challenge her for the Democratic presidential nomination," reported Baier. "Tonight, one possibility you probably have not considered."
"Hillary is in hot water," Doocy reported. "So some Democrats are looking for Plan B. How about Al Gore? The former VP is gaining steam because nobody in the party has done more on the issue of global warming. And now Ezra Klein writes for Vox, 'You can believe Gore a visionary or believe him a blowhard, but he's offering a very different, and much more radical, vision of what politics should be about than even Elizabeth Warren, to say nothing of Hillary Clinton.'
"Furthermore, liberals love the resume that features Nobel Prize, Oscar, and Grammy just in the time since he won the popular vote but lost in the 2000 election. But do people care? Climate change is the sixth most important issue to voters in a recent Fox News poll. And we also don't know if Gore is ready to set aside business ventures that have recently netted him more than $200 million. That's why some strategists are guessing Gore may run just for the platform."
As reporters and members of Congress begin to dig into the Clinton email scandal, former Democratic presidential candidate has announced an upcoming visit to Iowa. He'll be in the important caucus state from May 5-7, as part of a training sessions for the Climate Reality Project, of which he's chairman.
This election might determine whether the "climate crisis" is solved, former Vice President Al Gore claims. The former politician makes the statement in a fundraising email from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.
"Here's what I believe," writes Gore.
"There is nothing more pressing in our time than confronting and solving the climate crisis.
"We have no time to spare. We must act now. Luckily, we have all the tools we need to solve this challenge. All we need is political will -- but political will is a renewable resource!
Former Vice President Al Gore, reacting to the debate:
"Obama arrived in Denver at 2 p.m. today — just a few hours before the debate started," Gore said on his network, Current. "Romney did his debate prep in Denver. When you go to 5,000 feet, and you only have a few hours to adjust, I don't know..."
"The president had an off night," a pundit on the liberal network said.
Former vice president Al Gore previews the "new version of the slideshow" on climate change in an interview with TakePart.com. "[E]very night on the news now, practically, is like a nature hike through the book of Revelations," Gore says in the excerpt released this morning.
Friends of former vice president Al Gore tell the New York Times that he "is mostly at peace these days with losing the presidency in 2000." The observation comes a dozen years after Gore lost the 2000 presidential election to President George W. Bush.
