No. No, it's not.
But I do sometimes wanna ask this... totally twistin' the subject around: Is Palin kinda like your guys' Gore? Do you gusy see her as this person who seemed like a solid, intelligent candidate, but who later really turned out to be an odd embarrassment?
Its hard for me to say Palin is in the category you put Gore in. Gore has always been (at least to me) about two things money and power. All his green initiatives have also been about enriching his pockets. Palin has always seemed like a normal person to me. I think she believes in what she believes and I can respect that. Yeah she's made some gaffes. She also seems to have embarassing family moments but if you or I were suddenly thrust into the spotlight I bet we would too. Plus I have seen some flashes of brillance out of her. Not so sure I would vote for her but I also think that the press doesnt do her justice either thanks in part to institutional sexism that was well on display during the 2008 election cycle. Journalists went hard after both her and Hillary IMO. Plus its kind of refreshing to see a common person despite her negatives instead of some ivy league educated politician bot run for elected office.
I will own up one thing for you guys... I am really kinda glad Gore was NOT the President on Sep 11th. I am really kinda glad nobody has to swing in & 'tone down' any of the environmental policies he Gore administration might have heaped on us...
Even tho I do think more is needed for the environment--- and tho I am kinda glad Obama has an Iraq pullout plan; I don't know that I'd want to see what Gore's plan would have been for going in.
I've decided the White House is the last place you want to put an activist.
I agree with you the environment is important although I do not believe in the crock that is Global Warming. I think the biggest environmental threat to mankind is water pollution. I think we need to ensure that people have access to clean unpolluted drinkable water. I'm glad our troops are coming home at the same time I am worried that we may pulling out too soon and may end up with the same problems that pulled us into those areas in the first place. I would rather spend the extra time and do it right rather than having to go back in in 10-20 years.
