Hundreds wait for Gore to sign best-selling book


Al Gore was in his home town yesterday for a book signing. More than 700 people showed up to get a book and meet Al Gore. The manager of the book store said he didn't expect such a large crowd and he was surprised. This hasn't happened since John Cash came to town.


The Washington Post and the National Journal have notes on what happened with the Democratic Party meeting in Washington this Thursday and Friday. This is important for Washington DC because at this party meeting officals were deciding which State would go first for the 2008 Primary & Causcus season. Check out their reports and let's hope that Washington DC is one of the early State/District to go. We need our issues discussed by the Democratic candidates for President, i.e. voting rights for District Residents, etc.

Washington, DC
should be selected as the second caucus after Iowa. It is a very diverse city and it is retail politics at its best! There is no need for big media buys. Go door to door, or attend a local ANC meeting and get to know great people, 60% are African American. Also, there are very few Republicans so they wouldn't be able to have a caucus themselves of any meaning, which would provide lots of attention for all the Democratic candidates. All voters are registered by party so there wouldn't be any cross-over voting by Republicans.

I think your blog is great. It shows me so much information on Al Gore who I am sure I will vote for in 2008. I am also a democrat in DC; I live in an apartment building in Woodley park and most of the people in my building are uncertain about which democrat would be the right choice for us. Will you tell me more about Al Gore and his views. Thanks very much, I appreciate it.

Thank you very much! And hey, if you are interested get some of your other friends and co-apartment building dwellers to comment on this blog! I am going to begin a little campaigning in the next few months.

Cheers, and Go Al Gore!!
