Gore is 'getting the band back together'

Right on schedule. In the third week in February, speculation about Al Gore's future picked up considerably when Roger J. Stone Jr. and Dick Morris wrote about the possibility of another Gore presidential campaign. In the third week in March, a cover story for The American Prospect sparked a new round of Gore-related scuttlebutt. Now it's the third week in April. Guess what the hot topic of conversation is?

Al Gore is getting the band back together. In a move that could inch him closer to another bid at the presidency in 2008, the former vice president has hired Roy Neel, a veteran of presidential politics, to help run his current campaign to raise awareness of global warming.

The WaPo's Richard Cohen added today, "[O]n paper, he is the near-perfect Democratic candidate for 2008." Gore may be a man on a mission, but is the mission the 2008 campaign? Stay tuned.
