In 2008, Al Gore will win the presidency as an independent.
What held Gore back in 2000 was not any other candidate, but the orthodoxy imposed on him by the apparatus of the Democratic Party, and the corporate sponsors of the two-party system.
In his wildly popular and influential film, "An Inconvenient Truth," people saw not the Al Snore of the Democrats, but the real Gore: intelligent, compassionate, visionary, and capable of great leadership.
Gore's new status and popularity will make possible a massive grassroots campaign. People will be eager to support and elect a qualified candidate free of the politics of the trough.
By winning the presidency as an independent, just eight years after losing it in a cataclysmic charade of debased two-party politics, Gore will achieve the greatest comeback in the history of American politics, and the most significant.
One further prediction: in a dramatic gesture of conciliation, not to mention good humor, Gore will name Ralph Nader as his running mate.
