Gore Campaigns On Capitol Hill

21 03 2007

From Breitbart, via Drudge:

“Today I am here to deliver more than a half million messages to Congress asking for real action on global warming,” said the former politician, who has transformed himself from failed presidential candidate into the country’s leading environmental gadfly.

Global warming is real, and human activity is the main cause,” Gore lectured lawmakers, many of whom until recently had publicly taken the opposite view.

His visit on Capitol Hill was a homecoming for the former lawmaker form Tennessee, who served in both the House and Senate before being elected former president Bill Clinton’s vice president in 1992.

The first president George Bush, father of the incumbent, once mocked Gore as “ozone man” for what he deemed far-out environmental views.

But in recent years, Gore’s stock has risen as global warming has become a front burner issue with growing numbers of Americans.

Speculation continues to swirl about his future political plans — specifically, whether he will choose to run again for the White House he narrowly lost in 2000 to current US President George W. Bush.
