No Gore in ’04

Today, Gore made his first smart presidential campaign decision ever — he announced that he will not run for president in 2004. No doubt he wants to set himself up as the savior of the Democratic party and the country in 2008 (by taking a page from Nixon’s book). It’s a bit of a gamble… But it might pay off for him. Gore’s decision increases the odds that Bush will win re-election in 2004, but it also means that we might elect a President Gore in 2008, depending on who the Republicans can field (and on about a billion other factors). Very interesting news…
