I would like to hear Al Gore in the first person on his network rather than read someone’s article about “the moral obligation not to run“. The writer’s point being that conditioning the battlefield (people’s opinions) was more important than political and legislative decision-making. It didn’t work for me. I believe Mr. Gore’s political obligation is clear. To act, not talk about action. The populace, after 8 years of inaction in the battlefield, is more than ready to create, if Gore will run, an inevitable Golden Age and turning point in the American story. The gift of life, to be on this planet, is Al’s true salvation. It is the opposite spirituality of tying on a suicide bomb jacket. The fulfillment of a life, consequent in life-giving actions – that is our abiding moral obligation.
