...is not on Bush's side. Every day that goes by is one day closer to inauguration day 2008 2009. And Bush's political pull drips away a little more the closer we get to that magic day. Anything and everything that keeps Bush occupied with "other stuff" means less time that Bush can spend on say, horrifyingly bad health care proposals. So the fact that the House Republicans are now locked in a three-battle to replace Tom Delay and that this leadership fight is going to step on Bush's State of the Union address just warms my heart.

Also, Al Gore gave a barn-burner of a speech on Bush's illegal wire-taps today. He keeps this up and we're going to start speculating on Gore making a new Presidential run. Now that I think about it, I'm really not finding the ideal all that terrible.

I agree. I'm finding the net abuzz with the thought of Al Gore for President in 2008. If Gore keeps on showing this kind of intelligence and independence, then he would be a welcome addition to the race.

Maybe he would shake Hillary Clinton out of the stupor she's been in.

With this in mind, I've set up a new kind of resource at my web site, IrregularTimes.com -
My pet name for the project is Wiki for President 2008. It includes an Al Gore for President section, but people can come and add material, edit what's there, for any potential Democratic presidential candidate.

The Gore section is at:

If you're really contemplating supporting Gore in 2008, you ought to come and have a look, and maybe contribute your thoughts to the section.

Ah, Craig, you are indulging in wishful thinking. The next inauguration day is in 2009. But there's always the chance that Bush will Plame-out before then, and we'll be able to say goodby to President Cheney in January, 2009.

On that cheery note, have a nice day.
