The Brits loved him. They found him funny and passionate. He sat down for an interview with the Guardian UK to discuss many things, including a possible run for the Presidency in 08. He also discussed the Shrub and his minions, describing them as: "If you have a renegade band of rightwing extremists who get hold of power, the whole thing goes to the right. But I haven't moved. I'm where I've always been."
The gist of the interview is that Gore is pushing his global warming message, not Gore the candidate. He states that even if he did run and was elected, without the Senate and House behind him there is little he could do with regard to global warming. He mentions the Kyoto conference and when he returned from the meetings only one senator would back him to ratify the accord he helped put in place. He states he has failed to deliver the message for 30 years on global warming, and he still has time to do it.
Its a fairly long, indepth interview and even though the interviewer tries to draw Gore out on his political aspirations, he doesn't bite. Take a gander at it if you have the time. I enjoyed it.
