No Gore for you

Looks like Al Gore is taking the high road and won’t be endorsing a candidate during the primaries.

From CNN:

The sources say Gore talks with both Clinton and Obama, and is on good terms with both. But with Sen. John Kerry and Bill Clinton both aligned to a candidate, Gore has a role to serve as the neutral elder statesman in the party.

I guess this election has been divisive enough without Gore adding to it.   I did hear today that both Clinton and Obama will be meeting with John Edwards in the coming days.   If that endorsement comes – it will be interesting to see who for.

Another interesting article:

Ron Paul Won’t Endorse McCain

Ron Paul said he’d only support McCain for president if the Arizona senator “has a lot of change of heart” on his Iraq war stands.

Thank god there’s one Republican with some common sense on this issue.   McCain’s quote that he would be willing to keep the troops in Iraq for 100 years will be the sound-bite of the summer.

    Not sure if Ron Paul is really a Republican, he really is a libertarian in Republican clothing. As bad or good as McCain’s ‘troops in Iraq for 100 years’…Paul’s beliefs about the “NAFTA Superhighway” is so much tastier.

    I used to consider myself an independent and really liked John McCain, I thought what happened to him in 2000 when he was running against Bush was rather distateful.

    Of course, the last 8 years have firmly galvanized me against the GOP and when I look at McCain, I’m no longer sure what I liked about him. Did he change or did I?

    You probably both changed. I was a “McCainiac” the first time around. He was a moderate voice of open-tent inclusion who reached across the aisle frequently. Since then he has supported Bush’s unjustifiable war in Iraq, even to the point of insanity. While I still respect him, I just can’t get behind someone who got behind Dubya. Particularly after the way Bush’s people slandered him in South Carolina.
