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.
The Rhetorica Network
I offer commentary on the rhetoric of the American conversation, especially as it unfolds in documentary film, the news media, and politics. Check out my feeds on Twitter and Instagram. Also be sure to see my work at Carbon Trace Productions, a non-profit documentary film studio in Springfield, Missouri. I am a Professor of Media & Journalism at Missouri State University. I teach classes in mobile journalism and documentary filmmaking.
