Gore goes from bad joke to great white hope

Al GoreAndrew Sullivan is amongst many US politicos who want Al Gore to run for re-election as President in 2008:

Americans would not, I think, fear a Gore presidency on matters of defence. Most other Democrats are much more vulnerable on this score, which matters after 9/11 much more than it did in the Clinton fin de siècle. What Gore would add, moreover, is a genuine, impassioned and justified revulsion at some of the tactics that the cabal of Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld has deployed: torture, rendition, warrantless wire-tapping and unnecessary estrangement from allies.
