Gore on tour…

Howard Kurtz considers the evidence that Al Gore will run for president in 2004. The book tour, promoting “Joined at the Heart,” provides an excellent excuse to travel the country and talk about politics without really talking about politics. This 12-city meet-and-greet should culminate in a decision to run, unless the signs are simply too unfavorable. With the mid-term losses and the subsequent damage to Daschle and Gephardt, Gore still looks like the front-runner.
