Gore’s Not Running, According to Reuters


In left-of-center (or furtherblogland, there is some controversy over this Reuters story which indicates Al Gore has decided to not run for the presidency in 2008.

Whether Reuters is misinterpreting a Gore statement or not, we can look at the larger picture: Gore hasn’t hired staff, he hasn’t formed an exploratory committee, there hasn’t been the usual whispering in Democratic circles. Right now, there’s no indication that Gore is running for elected office.

An Oscar, however, might be a different story.
