Amidst the talk of a possible return to Presidential politics by Al Gore, it’s interesting to note that there’s something of a parallel between him and Richard Nixon forty years ago. Both were sitting Vice-Presidents who lost a close – or stolen, depending on your point of view – Presidential election then left frontline politics only to return eight years later in the midst of a troublesome war to run for President. There’s even a Texan President to add to the comparisons, though John Kerry and Dick Cheney don’t really fit into the Barry Goldwater and Hubert Humphrey roles too well.
It's just a ride.
