Al Gore won’t run for President. He doesn’t need to step down from the heights.



No one has ever won an Academy Award and a Nobel Peace Prize the same year. His net worth is estimated at more than $100 million. And he doesn’t have to put up with the indignity of politics.



Most of all, he’s in the perfect place to exact revenge.



Not just against George Bush. Gore has already enjoyed shooting that fish in the barrel.



I’m talking revenge against Bill and Hillary Clinton. Or any other Democrat toward whom he harbors ill feelings.



Look at Gore’s options:




  • He could endorse Barack Obama for President. (Of course, it didn’t work out so well when he endorsed Howard Dean four years ago.)



  • He could withhold his endorsement of Hillary for a loooooong time.



  • Once Hillary is President, he could speak out against her policies – environmental or foreign policy – whenever he chose.


Gore is a famously sensitive man. He believes the 2000 election was stolen from him. And he believes the Clintons and a lot of Democrats piled on him when he was down.



Now, as so often happens in politics, he’s back up.



The 2000 election was a long time ago. But revenge is a dish best served cold.
