Gore jokes about Presidential run

BBC News - Gore jokes over White House bid
DiCaprio, who was quizzing Mr Gore on stage during the Oscars ceremony, asked him if he had "any kind of major, major announcement" to make.

Mr Gore, who lost to George Bush in the 2000 US elections, said: "Even though I honestly had not planned on doing this, I guess, with a billion people watching it's as good a time as any.

"So, my fellow Americans, I'm going to take this opportunity right here and now, to formally announce my intention..."

Drowned out

However, he never got to finish his sentence, as the music used to make winners wrap up their speeches cut in and drowned him out.

He left the stage with DiCaprio laughing.
I doubt that Gore will run in 2008, but he has definitely moved back into the limelight recently. I feel like he has also lost some of that uptight, wooden image that he had back in the day. Could he win in 2008? I don't know, he almost did in 2000. As someone I know likes to point out, America doesn't like a loser. But we've elected them before so I wouldn't rule it out entirely.
