Hill and Bill Or Al
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.
Everything is sort of ambiguous at this point, but he hasn't ruled out a run. He would be a hard man to beat next November and he doesn't have Ms. Clinton's problem with polling showing growing negative feelings about her. In the media he seems to be much more popular today that he did in 2000.
The second aide approached by Vice-President Gore's allies said: "There is no love lost between Gore and Hillary. They don't think she can win and they're probably right. If Gore runs, he's got a really good chance of getting thenomination. And he has a good chance of pulling off the election, too."I liked Gore in 2000 and this country would be in a lot better shape today if the election had turned out differently. He's probably the best candidate the democrats could field.
This is going to get interesting, I hope.
A poll of leading Democratic and Republican strategists found that one in four thought Mr Gore would emerge a strong contender. "He already has emerged - he just has to announce," a Democrat told the magazine Opinion Journal.
A Republican said: "Gore could be the toughest Democrat to beat."
