Gore to be drafted?

Senior Democrats mull Al Gore’s nomination [Daily Telegraph]

About time too!

It’s been obvious since Super Tuesday that the Democratic nomination contest would go all the way to the convention and that that would ultimately hand the Presidency over to McCain. I don’t believe that either Clinton or Obama can beat Mac now. If the Democrats want the White House, they have to draft Gore, and get these childish squabblers off the stage ASAP.

They probably also ought to look at amending the US Constitution to remove the ban on Presidents’ serving two terms. That way, if Bill Clinton fans want him back in the White House they can actually vote for him, rather than having to vote for his wife.
