Kos-Heads Love them Some Gore

Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.


The wonky white guys over at the Daily Kos go coo-coo for Al Gore! A poll measuring readers’ interest in a Gore presidential bid comes back with 50 percent saying either “I would abandon my current favorite, go strong for Gore” or “I don’t have a current favorite, I’ve been waiting for Gore this whole time.” The next most popular answer, with 13 percent, is “I would stay with my current favorite, but consider Gore.”

Hard to say if these political junkies are representative, but if I were Gore, I’d be dusting off the Weight Watchers literature. Just sayin’.
