Draft Gore!: Will The Nobel Prize for Peace Be The Latest To Name Al Gore Winner?
In the "here's a vote Bush & Cheney, Florida and Ohio can't (literally!) steal from a Democrat!" department.
Also noted at All Things Democrat (by the resident grump - me):
Wish Al Gore the best tomorrow when the winner of the Nobel Peace Prize is awarded.
In a year when Bill Clinton’s Veep brought home awards at Cannes, from the Academy AND Emmy awards mostly for his work on educating America and the world about global warming, I would love the tighty righties to have reason to deal with another “Inconvenient Truth” on Friday if the man many want to run for Democratic candidacy for president in 2008 wins. Nods to the folks at DraftGore, too.
[Now if only we could get Henry Kissinger’s peace prize recalled!]
Nods, too, to Doris Lessing, who at 88 today became the oldest person (let alone woman) to win the Nobel prize in literature. Lessing’s work is considered - uh… can you say seminal work when it comes to feminism? - important stuff in understanding women and women’s power.
