Bumped and Updated: A Suffolk University poll shows Gore could beat Clinton in New Hampshire:
The only obstacle for Clinton in the Democratic primary is Al Gore. Twenty-nine percent of Clinton voters would switch to Gore if he announced for president, and when all of the switches from other Democratic candidates were recalculated, Gore would defeat Clinton. In total, 32 percent of Democratic voters would support Gore over the candidate they are currently leaning toward.

It's official. Al Gore is seriously considering a run for the White House according to a report in the Taipei Times:
Al Gore visit postponed Former US vice president Al Gore will not be able to make it to Taiwan this September to address the issue of global warming, Democratic Progressive Party Legislator Tien Chiu-chin (田秋堇) said yesterday. Tien, who invited Gore to visit Taiwan to promote awareness on global warming, told reporters yesterday that she received an e-mail from the Harry Walker Agency, which has the exclusive right to arrange Gore's speeches, saying that Gore had canceled all his scheduled events in the next six months. The visit to Taiwan had been postponed to next year, she added. Tien said the reason for the cancelation was that Gore was considering a presidential bid.
Al Gore would be my choice hands down for President in 2008. He is by far the most experienced and qualified candidate from either side of the aisle. He served as Vice President for 8 years after a long career in the Senate. He is eloquent, intelligent, passionate and relentless. He is a proven winner having garnered a plurality of the popular votes in three successive elections (1992, 1996, and 2000); the first two as Vice President and the last as President.
