Agree with everyone here, Gore is old news. And would likely make a GOP nominee the next POTUS.
However, there is something weird about all this. First, ABC would not have put this out without some solid sources. So my best guess is this was kind of a “feeler” news story, to take the temperature of the political climate. I could be wrong, but I think there is some interest from Gore. But again, I agree, he won’t be elected.
Anyone remember the speeding ticket he got driving to the Oregon Coast in 2004? Not that has anything to do with anything, but just a sidelight.
