Gore rules out bid for US White House in 2008 http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/20070216/ts_alt_afp/usvote2008democrat_070216193307;_ylt=AptJB2K2FVzESmWWcElWHShh24cA
"I have no intention to run for president," Gore said in an interview conducted in Los Angeles and broadcast Thursday by the BBC.
"I can't imagine in any circumstance to run for office again," said the former Democratic vice president under then-president Bill Clinton.
What is there to really say about this? It's a direct quote, with as clear phrasing as you might imagine.
I think the Draft Gore fundraising by ActBlue is still worth keeping, though, seeing as the funds go to the DNC (and Howard Dean's 50-state strategy) if Gore doesn't run.
Gore for Senate?
So close! Drat that music!!!

Obama 2008 - I want my country back
Nation-Building was founded by Aziz Poonawalla in August 2002 under the name Dean Nation. Dean Nation was the very first weblog devoted to a presidential candidate, Howard Dean, and became the vanguard of the Dean netroot phenomenon, raising over $40,000 for the Dean campaign, pioneering the use of Meetup, and enjoying the attention of the campaign itself, with Joe Trippi a regular reader (and sometime commentor). Howard Dean himself even left a comment once. Dean Nation was a group weblog effort and counts among its alumni many of the progressive blogsphere's leading talent including Jerome Armstrong, Matthew Yglesias, and Ezra Klein. After the election in 2004, the blog refocused onto the theme of "purple politics", formally changing its name to Nation-Building in June 2006. The primary focus of the blog is on articulating purple-state policy at home and pragmatic liberal interventionism abroad.
