Unsolicited Advice to the Democratic Party

Since there does not appear to be anything rational or even sane about american politics, it seems likely that the many people who are not even remotely qualified will be contending for the 2008 democratic candidate slot.

In the spirit of getting way out ahead of most mainstream political pundits, let me offer this thought for the consideration of the panjandrums of the DLC (the L is silent); run Al Gore. He's known and he's got the goods as a reform candidate, or even a corrective candidate.

He has a Natural Constituency that could be grown and shaped. The toxic waste from the last campaign will have to be dealt with. But for an america groaning under the weight of the corruption, mismanagement, incompetence and general pathology of the second Bush administration he would be a welcome breath of fresh air.

If the United States of America exists as a recognizable country in 2 years, he shouldn't be ruled out.
