Democratic Congressman Pushes for Gore to Run Again

Wednesday, March 15, 2006

WASHINGTON — Democrat Al Gore, who in 2000 lost one of the closest presidential elections in U.S. history to Republican George W. Bush, should run for president in 2008, a congressman said Wednesday.

Questioned about the contest, Democratic Rep. Jim Moran of Virginia said: "I'd like to see him get into the race."

"He won the popular vote in 2000, and I think he's even stronger and more committed," Moran said Wednesday on C-SPAN's Washington Journal. "But you know, he's got his own life and it's his decision to make."

Gore has retreated into private life in Tennessee since his contested loss to Bush in the 2000 election. But the former vice president occasionally delivers spirited speeches criticizing Bush administration policies and promoting his views on foreign policy, the environment and other issues.

Last weekend, Gore returned to Florida where he lost the presidency by a few hundred votes to campaign for Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson. During the trip, Gore jokingly referred to himself as "a recovering politician."

A spokesman for Gore had no immediate reaction to Moran's comments.

Hey DC4AG,

I think this is exactly the kind of thing that we want to see happen. People, politicians, all rising in support of Al Gore.

Many thanks for keep us uptodate.

Hope all is well.

Things are going well. We will probably have a caucus here in DC in early 08. We need to be working on this in DC and all the other early primary and caucus states, Iowa, N.H. and a western state like Colorado, NM or Arkansas.

Where was he in 2000 and 2004? Now he wants Gore to come in and save America after allowing Bush to do all the damage? I feel sorry for Al Gore in a way, what with all of you hounding him constantly. He is doing such good work in the field of global warming, and no one gives a damn.
