I'm so excited that Gore won. He's really made a difference in the way Americans see global warming and environmental issues. As someone who works to promote eco-friendly businesses for a living, I've seen a sea change over the past year or so in attitudes about green living.

Bush = worst president ever
Gore = Nobel Peace Prize recipient
Sweet.

I've always love Doris Lessing.
What a hoot.

I hope he doesn't run, for some reason I have a sinking feeling that everything will be messed up if he does. Maybe it's just leftovers from the last time.

so ... Gore has an Oscar and a Nobel Peace Prize, and Bush is widely considered the most incompetent president in history.

it seems as if Gore really did win in 2000, and it was America that lost.

Excellent! Now I can keep my "Re-elect Gore 2008" bumpersticker on my car awhile longer.

Looking at his reaction after the Oklahoma City Bombing you may have been fucked either way, at least on a civil liberties front.

i don't think he'd torture anybody.

but Gore isn't Bush. and let's just hope that Bush doesn't decide he wants to detain you, INDY, without giving a reason, because he's given himself the powers to do so. but, hey, what's the good in enabling the greatest expansion of executive power in the history of the United States if you don't intend to give yourself some cool new powers?

Looks to be the case.

I think one reason people like Gore so much is that he expresses his message about the importance of saving the environment in a way that doesn't turn off those who may not be totally convinced (in other words, he's not preachy). He's done his research, he explains it in a way that people can understand, and that's very commendable.

But anywho, congratulations to Gore and the IPCC on winning the award. You've all earned it .

And that Doris seems like an awesome lady .

Incidentally, did Al Gore really win an Oscar? Or as the "star" was he just allowed to make the acceptance speech.

I do believe that he personally did not win the Oscar. He was coaxed up to the stage by the producers if memory serves.
