Gore Wins!

It was announced today that Al Gore has won the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize. Go figure! I believe he was the odds on favorite to win it. He has a Emmy, Grammy, Oscar; what now Batman?

Americans seem to be all consumed with the environment, at least for now. That could equate into a political future, more so than he has now. There are those that want to draft him as a presidential candidate, but he has said no up til now, that is.

Will he run for President? I think it is a little early to say, but IMO, there is an excellent chance that he will. He would have the attention of environmentalist and those sympathetic. He has a built in group of supporters. That could equate into votes in the primaries.

It will be an interesting situation to keep an eye on in the future. If he does decide to run, it will be interesting to see if all the awards will translate into massive support or not. Right now it would be a one issue campaign, but he has enough experience and wisdom to expand into the real world.

Will he be successful? Only the primaries can answer that question, Trying to predict that would be disastrous for an analyst. After some testing in the public a clearer answer can be formulated. But right now, it is up for grabs.

I don't see Gore running for president. He can do more good for the country in the private sector. IMO.

I would say you are right. Maybe this will not go to his head and he will do something substantial.
