American Dream Team: Draft Gore-Obama

A ticket of Al Gore for President and Barack
Obama for Vice President would create an
electricity and enthusiasm that would transform
American politics and send shock waves of
excitement throughout a world yearning for
new American leadership.

With the release of Al Gore's new book about
reason and truth in politics, and the July 7
world-wide concert for global warming, the
stage is set for a new era in American politics
that would be more exciting than any event
since the inaugural of JFK.

Al Gore would bring the most commander in
chief qualities in the history of presidential
candidates with a passion and depth that
would lift the hopes and hearts of Americans
ready to inaugurate the post Bush era.

Barack Obama would bring an enthusiasm,
idealism and spirit that would make the ticket
soar above partisan politics, would rally young
people into public service in ways reminscent
of John and Robert Kennedy, and would be
the greatest worldwide boost to American
leadership for freedom and democracy in
many years.

Al Gore was right early, clear, and always
about the Iraq war and has the commander
in chief experience to lead America through
the challenges left by the disasters of George
W. Bush.

For a generation Gore has been right early,
clear and with depth on the great issues
facing the country from nuclear arms control
to global warming, from the power of new
technology to better the world to a rousing
call to respect our bill of rights and honor
our political, civic and religious freedoms.

He has excelled in every endeavor he has
undertaken as Member of Congress, Senator,
Vice President and idea entrepreneur who
thinks big and knows how to get things done.

Gore has always been ahead of his time on
great issues and his breadth of experience
reaches from head of state diplomacy to
financial and capital markets.

Barack Obama would be an extraordinary
and unique Vice President who would inspire
young people everywhere, and would be
a powerful symbol of American freedom,
American justice and American opportunity
throughout the world.

Obama's appeal would transcend political
parties, generations, and nations.

Partnered with the most experienced
presidential candidate in American history
Barack Obama could well ensure his ultimate path to the Presidency.

A Gore-Obama ticket would lift the hearts
of Americans ready to dream again and
lift the spirit of a nation that hungers for a
unity of optimism, patriotism and community.

A Gore-Obama ticket would raise gigantic
sums of money because it would raise
gigantic hopes about what is possible for
the future of America if we dare to dream
again.

Personally I would enthusiastically support
any of the Democratic candidates and am
intrigued by the possiblities if Chuck Hagel
declares independence from a decayed Republican Party.

Gore-Obama, however, is about something
bigger, larger, grander and more noble than
mere conventional politics.

The incumbent has divided us against each
other, and has divided our generation from
future generations on almost every level in
which future generations will pay the price
of misdeeds and mistakes today, from debt
to war to pollution.

Gore-Obama is about the future, about the
kids, about the generations to come and
about an America that would once again
believe that it is our sacred obligation to
leave a better world to the kids and to the
generations that follow.

Gore-Obama is about who we are, the
standards we set, the future we build,
and the great aspirations that should
once again be our mission as men,
women, Americans and citizens of the
world.

The poet told us that our reach should exceed
our grasp, otherwise what is heaven for?

It is time to dream again, to reach for the stars
again, to have great aspirations and great
expectations again.

It is time to to share the country we love again, to join a call to
conscience, a call to action, and a call to confidence driven by who we
are, and
what we stand for.

Draft Gore and Obama and we will have a
dream team for the generations.
