If I were a man of means and could fund a 527, I would devote extraordinary resources to ensure that Al Gore could drone on endlessly in highly public settings about the climate crisis while supporting Democrats and positing that Barack Obama is the reincarnation of Abraham Lincoln.

Alas, I am not a man of means. Thus, sadly, Al Gore's opportunities to remind America about everything wrong with the Democratic party will be limited to his just completed speech.

I would be remiss if I failed to note that to these eyes the night is unfolding extremely well for the Democrats, Al Gore's dreary whining about the polar ice bears notwithstanding.
