Al Gore in Florida

Hillary Clinton has tapped Al Gore to campaign with her in Florida. Hillary is looking more relaxed than normal in the video below. Could be that the "worm has turned" and Donald Trump is on the run. 

It's a joy but painful at the same time to watch Al Gore speak. I will never forget the theft of the election in 2000 when Gore won the popular vote only to "lose" to George W. Bush in Florida. There were so many ballot irregularities in Florida, not to mention the SCOTUS disgraceful decision in Bush v Gore, one of the worst decisions ever. 

And just look at what happened after Bush "won". We were attacked on 9/11/01, Bush proceeded to ram through HUGE tax cuts, go to war in Iraq on a credit card, and then crashed the economy in 2008. All in all, the Bush presidency was an unmitigated disaster and we can only wonder how things would have been different if Gore had "won" the election.

It's exciting to think of Al Gore serving a role in Hillary's administration. Head of the EPA? Energy Secretary? Dept of the Interior? And then if you can imagine the Democrats taking the House AND the Senate? We could actually get a few things done.
