Please Please Please Don't Let Him Get What He Wants
Christopher Hitchens wonders if a Nobel Peace Prize would be enough to get Al Gore to run for President again, and concludes:
Should he make up his mind not to run, he would retrospectively abolish all the credit he has acquired so far. It would mean in effect that he never had the stuff to do the job and that those who worked and voted for him were wasting their time. Given his age and his stature, can he really want that to be the conclusion that history draws?
I love ya, Hitch, but I pray you're wrong.
