Exclamation

Gore Won't Run in 2004, Says Adviser

By WILL LESTER
.c The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) - Former Vice President Al Gore has decided not to run for president in 2004, a senior Gore adviser said Sunday.

Gore planned to make the announcement on CBS ``60 Minutes,'' the adviser said.

Gore would have been the likely front-runner in the Democratic field, even though many party activists have said privately they hoped he wouldn't run.

After gradually re-entering politics over the last year, the Democrats' 2000 nominee campaigned for selected candidates around the country this year, then spent the last month promoting a book on the family that he wrote with wife Tipper and making an extensive round of media appearances, including ``Saturday Night Live'' this weekend.

Gore's decision opens up the 2004 presidential field for Democrats. Vermont Gov. Howard Dean is running and Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry has formed an exploratory committee and will announce his decision after the new year. Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman, Gore's running mate in 2000, has said he is interested in running

Also considering a run are Senate Democratic leader Tom Daschle, Missouri Rep. Dick Gephardt and North Carolina Sen. John Edwards.

Since re-entering the public arena, Gore has been talking about his views on issues from Iraq to health care to the economy and sending mixed signals on whether he planned to run.

Some aides said the 54-year-old Gore would feel differently from day to day about the decision. He had said he planned to deliberate through the holidays and announce a decision after Christmas.

But Gore finished a round of media appearances Saturday night and decided to go ahead with the announcement. Aides did not immediately say why he changed his timetable.

Technically, it could happen. The 20th Amendment to the Constitution says that a President cannot serve more than two consecutive terms, which Bill Clinton has not.

Ya see, the thing is, Gore WAS elected in 2000....

This is my home, the country where my heart is;
Here are my hopes, my dreams, my holy shrine;
But other hearts in other lands are beating
With hopes and dreams as true and high as mine.
My country's skies are bluer than the ocean,
And sunlight beams on cloverleaf and pine;
But other lands have sunlight too, and clover,
And skies are everywhere as blue as mine.
O hear my song, thou God of all the nations,
A song of peace for their land and for mine.

Gore wasn't elected...I think Bush was the best choice really to handle all of this turmoil. I found it an unbelieveable surprise that Gore isn't going to run!

Anybody who believes Bush is doing a better job that Gore would've is just as stupid as Dubya.

By the way, I seem to recall dubya senior had a pretty big lead in the opinion polls once upon a time, but hey, he was out after one term! Deja vu, son of a bitches.
