The Tao of Politics

One of my main concerns is: how can I make a difference? There are thousands of political blogs out there. It’s easy to get lost in that ocean. So I may blog about politics on occasion, or I may blog about health issues, depending on where my interests lead me, and where I feel I can contribute something of significance.

It seems that Democrats have a choice: they can either offer a detailed agenda about what they would do if elected, or simply get out of the way and let the Republicans continue to self-destruct. I tend to think the latter approach is best. The American public believes that the country is moving in the wrong direction. Democrats offer a real alternative. I just wouldn’t get too specific. Don’t give the Republicans ammunition to attack the Democrats.

Al Gore for vice president in 2008? That’s what this article advocates. I don’t know how seriously we should take it. But Al Gore really does have a problem with campaigning, and also with being a laughingstock in many quarters. These and other factors raise questions about his electability. I really want him to be president. In fact I have even thought about his running for vice president myself, on a ticket say with Howard Dean. If the ticket was elected, then the president could resign, thereby making Al Gore president that way. So no, I don’t rule out Al Gore for vice president in 2008, but I’d much rather he was elected president, in part to make up for the travesty of 2000.
