Although many believe that a ticket such as Gore/Obama would be unbeatable, Gore's entry into the race is far from certain. Philadelphia Inquirer columnist Dick Polman thinks not and lays out his reasoning in his blog (

His main point is that Oscar winner Gore is having too much fun playing himself in the media and all over the world. Mr. Gore is now on a book tour for his new book, "Assault on Reason". Polman believes that the honest and scathing criticisms in the book are not those of a typical, cautious candidate. Finally, why relive the negatives and disappointments of the past when the present is so enjoyable?

So I guess that we'll just have to await his next publication, "The Al Gore Diet and Exercise Book".

So Monica Goodling doesn't know who placed the names on the list of U.S. Attorneys to be fired. She may have been the liason between the Sept. of Justice and the White House but knowledge of any White House recommendations was above her pay grade.

The swamp of Washington politics has absorbed this secret. Nobody knows who decided which attorneys must go. Not "Can't Recall' Gonzales, not Deputy Attorney General McNulty, not Chief of Staff Sampson. Nobody.

Maybe Karl Rove knows, but he isn't talking. And some of his possibly revealing e-mails have mysteriously disappeared. Probably forever lost into a black hole.

I think that the names must have been put on the list by Penn & Teller.
