More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

  •  critical (none)
    not to be overly critical, but i do believe this poll will overstate Al Gore's support as his supporters will be the ones most likely to click here. Good luck with this though.

    You have the power, so start using it.

  •  This diary is the same old same old (2.00)
    Much as I like what Gore has said and done since his election campaign, the fact is we waited in vain for his testicles to descend prior to the election, when it really mattered.

    -7.88, -7.74 all looks yellow to the jaundiced eye

  •  Yeah, that's scientific! (none)
    The thread has Gore's name in it. Just call it the Gore cheering thread.

    (I'm a Gore fan, by the way, and voted for him in 2000, and would have voted for him over Kerry in a heartbeat, but his presidential aspirations are hopefully -- and rightly, I think -- behind him.)

  •  Al Gore Won in 2000 (4.00)
    In 2000 this country was in great shape. Yes the tech bubble was bursting, but we had a balanced budget and were running a surplus. Crime was down, poverty was down, teen pregnancy was down. The rest of the world respected us and most of it even liked us. And we were working on treaties to control global warming.

    When Bush finishes his term, we will have record deficits. More children will be living in poverty. And the rest of the world not only no longer trusts us, but they are laughing at how pathetic we are. We lost the World Trade Center to a terrorist attack within our own borders and one of the world's most precious and beloved cities to cronism and incompetence. Plus global warming will probably be too far along to stop.

    We really will need a president in 2008 who knows the ropes and can hit the ground running if we are going to come back from whatever brink Bush takes us to. There is no time for a learning curve. We will need Al Gore's experience and his expertise in everything from foreign policy to the environment.

    Markos's front-page poll?  He does one with Gore every month!

    I have to write a diary that includes Obama in a poll?

    •  You could... (none)
      ...but did he ever when 55 million votes? Don't get me wrong, Obama has a huge future in the party, but the Democrats and Independents I've talked to would eagerly vote for Al Gore. Experience, passion, gravitas & intelligence.

      But hey, it's early. We Gore people just really wanted to get our $.02.

          Senator run for President, that person could never possibly...

          Oh wait, John Edwards was a one-term Senator.

          (And by the way I love Al Gore and John Edwards for that matter, I just think he as legitimate a contender as J. Edwards and certainly people like T. Vilsack.)

  •  Interesting results (none)
    Seems the progressives are flocking from Feingold to Gore while the Clarkies are staying put on their general. This is really fascinating. I hope this gets close to the same votes as Kos' poll so we can get a good side by side to see exactly how voters break if Gore does or doesn't run (at least at this time- which is like incredibly far away, and curse the Internet for allowing us geeks outside D.C., Iowa and New Hampshire to even consider a Presidential race over three years out out).

  •  I went grocery shopping (4.00)
    and almost missed this poll...DKos is a full time job!

    When will the taxpayers get tired of paying for Bushco mistakes? Time for accountability draws near..... Gore/Clinton 2008??
