Let me get straight to the point.
There is nothing about Ralph Nader's remarks as reported Wednesday of last week to gladden the heart of any liberal or progressive, not because his attack was on Obama, because the attack was so filled with embarrassments.
Ralph Nader was one of the great and important personages of the 20th century. In the 21st century, not so much. In fact, the more often he opens his mouth, the worse what comes out of it seems to get. Read below the fold...

We're still waiting for that Sherman statement.... From a report in the Daily Telegraph (Hat tip, Big Orange's anoodle):
Friends of Al Gore have secretly started assembling a campaign team in preparation for the former American vice-president to make a fresh bid for the White House.
Two members of Mr Gore's staff from his unsuccessful attempt in 2000 say they have been approached to see if they would be available to work with him again. Read below the fold...

Two Oscars, in fact:
"An Inconvenient Truth," which turned Gore's lectures on the threat of global warming into a highly touted theatrical release, won the Academy Award for best documentary feature Sunday night.
Singer Melissa Etheridge also received the Oscar for best original song, "I Need to Wake Up," which was written for the movie.
And the teaser: Read below the fold...

Bloomberg (and not Reuters):
Gore has said he hasn't ruled out making another run for president, but he doesn't ``expect'' to launch a campaign. He made the comments during a visit to Australia in September, where he was promoting his film.
Oddly, the video that accompanies the Reuters story includes no mention either way of Gore's 2008 plans, expected or otherwise. Read below the fold...

I have never pretended to be a capitalist. But I respect reality, and I get the fact that I'm in a tiny minority and must function in a society that believes we should all have to work for someone else in order to eat. But I really, truly don't understand honest, old fashioned, greedy capital people who fail to take my money from me when I'm practically begging to give it to them:

We all make mistakes. We all have moments of cowardice, or when we fail to do what's right because it's harder. Sometimes, those acts (or inactions) have more serious consequences than we imagine at the time. When we fail, what's most important is that we learn from our mistakes, and that we're conscious and thoughful of them in the future. Read below the fold...
