US: You Can Call Me Al, Gore For President??

Marty Peretz, publisher of The New Republic, apparently just endorsed Al Gore for the Democratic nomination for President in 2008. No secret that Peretz (and TNR's editorial position) have been big on Gore since the mid 80's.
Interesting stuff. Gore, was robbed in 2000, so there is none of that loser tag that hangs over Kerry. He is no wimpy liberal, people forget that with Sam Nunn, he was a resolute cold warrior who voted for Contra aid. He is a Free Trader, tempered with a genuine commitment to the environment. The Daily Kosistas cannot say he does not cave in to business. His ideas on reinventing government, take a pragmatic, market-friendly approach to solving real problems. As a southerner, he understands folks who live outside of the east coast.

Lets see.
