Al Gore, Save Us From Ourselves!
There seem to be so many competing narratives right now in the mainstream media: Obama has it wrapped up (Narrative A), Clinton can still win it outright (Narrative B), the superdelegates will decide (Narrative C), and now Narrative D: only Al Gore can save our country. Pretty marvelous in terms of karma, huh? Why pre-fabricated line of media bull are you buying these days?
Al Gore, who lost to George W. Bush in the 2000 presidential election, is becoming a key potential power broker in the increasingly bitter battle between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama to win the Democrat nomination. Gore emerged yesterday as a possible mediator who could negotiate a resolution if the primary campaign ends in a stalemate and has to be decided by the party convention, where divisions are likely to run deep.
