Yay, Al!

You may not know this about me but I love Al Gore. So does E, for that matter. In fact, E calls him the best president we never had.

So imagine how excited I was to hear Al won the Nobel Peace Prize today. I can't think of anyone more deserving this year.

As predicted, the awarding of the Nobel Prize immediately intensified calls for him to enter the Democratic nominating contest for president and speculation over whether he would. The rumors that he would win it had already helped a grassroots movement to draft him into the race raise tens of thousands of dollars for advertisements.

Boy, don't I wish. I'd work hard for that campaign.

Congratulations, Al. You certainly deserve this award. Keep up the fight.
