Congratulations, Al Gore

There. I've blogged on it. Whatever. He's not running for President, believe me. Think about it. If you had just won an international award, felt at the height of your persuasive powers, were looking forward to more accolades around the globe in a celebstorm of your own making--WHY would you give that up to be hemmed in by the presidency? Al Gore can go where and do what he wants, and he doesn't have to contend in any real way with the realities of political life.

Believe me, he's not running.*

*(If, in the unlikely event he does announce, I will ride the T here in Boston wearing full Yankee regalia for a full day to atone for my mistaken certainty.)
