Gore in '08?

Two right-wing news sites have interesting stories giving a parallel between Gore's loss in 2000 and Nixon's loss in 1960, and predicting that Gore might be able to make the same kind of political comeback in 2008 that Nixon did in 1968. Both sites see Gore positioning himself to the left of Hillary and Kerry, as the anti-war candidate, and posit that his best chance would be if he rallied the Deaniac wing of the Democratic Party to win the nomination.

Interesting. If he wins the nomination, Gore might actually have a real shot at winning the general, considering the implosion of the Green Party, which was his nemesis in 2000, and assuming a continued farce of corruption and horribleness coming from the Republicans.

The articles are here and here.
