The fact that Gore just snagged the 2007 Nobel “Peace” prize tells us much more about the prize than we probably care to know. For a list of all the previous winners go to The Elephant Bar
Perhaps it’s high time that we all worked very hard to see that Gore gets drafted into candidacy for the presidential nomination? He says that he’s not interested but Gore and the truth are not always close companions. Imagine the chills up Hillary’s spine!

Here’s the slant from the left . . .
Excerpt from Mike Allen’s Playbook
Good Friday morning. Once lampooned and beleaguered, Vice President Al Gore is avenged. Denied the presidency in the chaos of the Florida recount of 2000, he now has received what is arguably the most prestigious award in the world. His obsession with the environment and global warming, which led former President George H.W. Bush to mock him as "ozone man," has now been certified on a global stage as a worthy and consequential crusade.
CNN, picking up CNN International, carried the announcement live from Oslo, Norway, initially in confusing translation. The APNewsAlert moved at 5:01 a.m.: "Former Vice President Al Gore and the U.N.'s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change have won the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize."
The vice president is in the San Francisco area. The calls for a candidacy from a scattered but dedicated band of supporters could now become a roar. But Gore has already shaken off his ghosts. Top adviser Michael Feldman tells Playbook about presidential rumblings: "My sense is that this won't affect that calculation. He has said all along he has no plans to run for president. He's been spending all his discretionary time on the climate crisis. This great honor will further enhance that."

An effort is afoot to draft Al GoreAl Gore’s apparent lack of interest in stepping back into national politics hasn’t stopped his admirers from a last-ditch attempt to draft the former vice president for a new run at the White House. In a relatively quiet – but frenetic – hustle to get their candidate in the mix, a group of supporters of the newly named Nobel Peace Prize winner has been raising hundreds of thousands of dollars for petition drives and ad campaigns. They say that with rumors of a Nobel Peace Prize and the new interest in global warming that his recent movie has generated, he’s looking more attractive every day. “Draft Gore” even ran a full-page – $65,000 – advertisement in the N.Y. Times Wednesday, plus commercials on liberal talk shows, hoping to entice their candidate into the race. Many believe that he actually won the last time he ran, only to be cheated out of the throne because of shady dealings in Florida. Should Al Gore jump in the presidential race?
