algore.jpg My guess is no but people are certainly talking about it. One things for sure: If he does win, you can expect an even more energized and hopeful Draft Gore movement effort.

After Gore was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize earlier this month, Kos posited a interesting, albeit somewhat far-fetched, set of circumstances that could propel Gore into frontrunner status virtually overnight.

The prize will be announced in mid-October. So say Gore scores an Oscar and Nobel in the same year, he can announce in November and still become THE story in the primaries. It's not as if he'll need the full year to get his name recognition up or make the case for his candidacy. He would instantly raise gobs of cash (I'd bet on tens of millions in the first 24 hours) and become the media sensation of the winter. He would instantly make hundreds of millions spent by his primary opponents obsolete. Talent would flock to him, decimating the staffs of his opponents.

Tim Dickinson had a great article in Rolling Stone this month making the case as to why Gore should run -- and why he could win.
