    uh-o, do I sense another run in 2016? lol, highly doubtful I know! It would make a fun primary though; Clinton v Gore instead of Clinton/Gore.

  • AppleStinx

    I fully expect Gore’s new book to be a pocket-size paperback printed on recycled paper.

    @ applestinx lol
    Anywayom im o not eally into politics at all. Didn’t care for this last election, , or the candidates ads that were just demonozomg each ot other annoying when I was watching one of the only 2 really good episodes this year. Episode 4. And I liked the season finale a lot. Those 2 episodes were just as good as it used to be. Otherwose, this season just seemed a little off. Still pretty good though. For jow justifoed is the best show ontv, which os created by graham yost, who created thje greatest series of all time, Boomtown,

    Breakingbad season 5 is what I’m referring to.

    Letterman scores another Democrat on his show. Wow. Dave must really have a lot of pull to pull that off. Gore will a) plug his book and b) announce that Letterman is buying a stake in Al Jereeza America. Letterman’s people are still hounding Sarah Palin to be on the show just to make fun of her. Why does she need that? Either way, Dave’s ratings will go through the roof if Sarah should guest. It’s a win-win for Dave. Maybe he’ll have the Clintons on again on consecutive nights like he did before.

    Dave needs to go. Jay Leno and Jimmy Fallon are the great comedians. All Dave can do is make fun of people and he is so boring. Al Gore is perfect for Dave’s show.
