Al Gore has announced he will not be running in 2004.
“I’ve decided that I will not be a candidate for president in 2004. … I personally have the energy and drive and ambition to make another campaign, but I don’t think that it’s the right thing for me to do,” Gore said, in an interview on the CBS news program “60 Minutes.”
In other words, the powers that be in the Democrat party flat-out told him to get lost and make way for some new candidates.
Among the names being tossed around as possible candidates is Senator Joseph Lieberman, Gore’s running-mate in 2000. But I don’t know why they’re bothering. Lieberman has about as much of a chance of winning the nomination as I do. America is simply not ready for a Jewish President. A woman for President? Sure. A Black or Hispanic presidential candidate? Very soon. But there’s simply no way a Jew is getting anywhere near the Oval Office . . . at least not in the near future.
