Is Gore the New Nixon?

According to Roger Stone, a "veteran GOP operative" and a swinging type of guy, Gore's public position in 2006 is eerily similar to Tricky Dick's in 1966. Both had a taste of the Presidency that was snatched away and decided to lay low for an intervening election.

Of course, I don't think that Stone's suggested platform of "[w]ithin 24 hours of taking office, he would withdraw all troops from Iraq" is a winner, it nonetheless does set the mind awandering into the possibilities of a 2008 Gore run.

Who knows, maybe the Dems could end up with a Gore/Clinton ticket in 2008.
