Gore Speaks

and he hints that it might be over sooner than we think and anyway, there's only five more months left. how much damage can be done in that time? i'm sure clinton has something else up her sleeves.

daily news: I think it's going to resolve itself. But we'll see," Gore told The Associated Press, referring to the possibility of one candidate dropping out before the party convention in August.

Viewed by some as one of the few influential high priests of the party, Gore doesn't even have plans to make an endorsement - let alone play the role of referee.

Gore dismissed party worrywarts who say the Democratic infighting only helps Republican John McCain.

"What have we got, five months left?" he said when asked about his endorsement.

one of the upsides to a long campaign is that the next president will be well informed on what's going on in america.

apparently, sen. harry reid and others are feeling confident that there would be a "natural" end. hmmmm, wonder what that could look like. clinton, naturally, pries votes from the supers with promises of cabinet positions. or obama turns out the votes and finally she leaves?

nyt: Senator Harry Reid, Democrat of Nevada and the majority leader, said in an interview that Democrats fretting over divisions in the party “need to relax and cool it a little bit.” Mr. Reid said he had recently had separate conversations with Ms. Pelosi, Mr. Dean and former Vice President Al Gore and was confident that the nominating fight would end naturally. The next contest is in Pennsylvania, where polls suggest that Mrs. Clinton is in a strong position, and her aides are confident of a sizable victory there, even after Mr. Casey’s endorsement of Mr. Obama.

howard dean is pushing for superdelegates to step up now.
