Gore: Bush is 'renegade rightwing extremist'

Al GoreIn a Guardian interview, Al Gore has attacked the Bush administration as "a renegade band of rightwing extremists". But he does seem to mean what he says about not running for President in 2008:

At the weekend, Time magazine reported that he was telling key fundraisers they should feel free to sign on with other potential candidates. The magazine quoted unnamed Democratic sources as saying that the former vice-president had also been asking the fundraisers to "tell everybody I'm not running".

I missed this Gore speech earlier in the year:

As we begin this new year, the Executive Branch of our government has been caught eavesdropping on huge numbers of American citizens and has brazenly declared that it has the unilateral right to continue without regard to the established law enacted by Congress to prevent such abuses.

It is imperative that respect for the rule of law be restored.
