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 (www.dickpolman.blogspot.com).
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".
