Gore Instists that he Will Not Run for President

In today's Washington Post, Al Gore explicitly states that he will not run for President.
"I can't imagine any circumstances in which I would become a candidate again. I've found other ways to serve. I'm enjoying them."
...
"I have no plans to be a candidate for president again," he said. "I don't expect to ever be a candidate for president again. I haven't made a so-called Sherman statement, because it just seems unnecessary, kind of odd to do that."

Its a shame, if he wanted it I think the Democratic nomination certainly, and the Presidency likely would be his for the taking in 2008. The remade Al Gore would be a compelling candidate far better than the cautious candidate we saw in 2000.

While I think Gore would have a good shot I don't know if the nomination is his for the taking. Yes he popular with the liberals but I don't know how the rest of the party will react to him yet. We'll have to see.
