I am a Democrat. When I look at Hillary Clinton, Obama Barack and John Edwards, I don't find all the qualities in any one of them that are going to be needed in the next administration. Nor do I find them in any other Democratic or Republican candidate.
Our next president will be left with a very messy war to deal with; an enormous deficit, if you count what has been spent in Iraq; a mandate to turn our country toward carbon neutrality; low standing in the international community and many other pressing issues such as healthcare, education, security and immigration. Much of what needs to be done will be very unpopular. With our voting population split, we need to assure that one party controls the White House and the Congress to effect the necessary changes.
Only one person has the skills to attempt such a monumental undertaking and is presently in a position to step into the race on a moment's notice. Experience, standing, a communicator, an effective campaigner, completely vetted, and tested in the trenches — Al Gore is our man.
