Feeling a little nauseous after last night's Hour of Power? A hair of this dog is probably not going to help you feel any better. Your neighbours' lights might have been out but Al Gore's ego was likely lit up like a Christmas tree:
Plans for Al Gore to take the Democratic presidential nomination as the saviour of a bitterly divided party are being actively discussed by senior figures and aides to the former vice-president.Sorry - did I cause you to lose the greasy bacon and eggs that were just settling your stomach?
Former Gore aides now believe he could emerge as a compromise candidate acceptable to both camps at the party's convention in Denver during the last week of August.Is that twist in your stomach a stifled laugh or dry heave?
Following a brief flurry of speculation that he might jump into the race last year, Mr Gore claimed he had "fallen out of love" with politics, but he has pointedly refused to rule out another tilt at the White House and said that the only job in public life that interests him is the presidency.Absolute Power.
Get the feeling that while many citizens denied themselves access to power being readily generated by coal-powered plants, Al Gore was consolidating his?
Prepare to damn up the waves of support and ready yourself for "the War on Carbon".
Rage Against the Bank Machine:
"I Won't Go to War (Fight for Al Gore)"
***Rage Against the Bank Machine want to assure listeners that all their compositions consist of sampled music: "It takes too much energy to record original instruments - we cannot continue to cut down trees for guitars or kill innocent animals for skins. The 1960's left us, not only with a legacy of activism, but also an endless supply of Beatles samples which we can use. After all, nobody has made better music than those drug-addled Liverpudlians. Those people who don't like the Beatles don't know anything about music and should be ignored."***
