Gore-l Warming [Update]

[Posted by reader_iam]

... to the idea of another stab at the presidency?
Former US vice president Al Gore will not be able to make it to Taiwan this September to address the issue of global warming, Democratic Progressive Party Legislator Tien Chiu-chin (田秋堇) said yesterday. Tien, who invited Gore to visit Taiwan to promote awareness on global warming, told reporters yesterday that she received an e-mail from the Harry Walker Agency, which has the exclusive right to arrange Gore's speeches, saying that Gore had canceled all his scheduled events in the next six months. The visit to Taiwan had been postponed to next year, she added. Tien said the reason for the cancelation was that Gore was considering a presidential bid.
Let's see who gets all hot and bothered by this--and why, how and in what way. Stormy weather ahead?

Hat tip.

Update: Sorry if this dashes anyone's hopes. OTOH, why should they be dashed?
