    He absolutely broke my heart at the end of the Letterman segment when he said he’s not thinking about running. I want this brilliant, eloquant, RATIONAL man for my president!!!!

    The only saving grace to it all is that he seems better suited to the role he is playing now than he was to the roles he was playing before. I would love to have THIS man as president, but if it is not to be, so be it….

    (But – DAMN………)

    Yeah oddjob, I know he’s doing much-needed and important work. I just want a president I can be proud of.

    You know, I really wish Maureen Dowd would just shut up.

    She had an editorial yesterday about how Gore needs to lose weight or some such shallow crap, and how Barak is slimmer, so people like him more.

    SHUT UP, MAUREEN! Al Gore is a sexy little cupcake. And I’ll take some squishy with my progressivism, if that’s how it’s gotta be.

    Wow. Shallow, much, Maureen? Our celebrity culture’s over-involvement with appearance is nothing short of septic, these days. The notion of applying the same standards to political figures is frankly revolting.

    Granted, it’s not really a new thing… ever since the Kennedy-Nixon debates, appearance of candidates has mattered to some degree… but the relative importance of physical appearance has vastly increased lately due to our media-drenched, photo-op-and-soundbyte-driven culture… and the effect is appalling.

    I loved that Letterman’s band played the Beach Boys’ “The Warmth of the Sun” when he entered…

    Also, I may be delusional, but I still hold out hope that Al will decide to enter the race late, perhaps after he’s won the Nobel in the fall. He’d be a fool to enter now, but I highly doubt that he’s “not thinking about running.”
