2007: The Year of Al Gore?
September 17, 2007 11:22 AM
The stars are certainly shining on former Vice President Al Gore. Last night he and his Current TV won an Emmy for interactive television. Current, available on cable and satellite services here, is a two-way network that combines user-generated content and original productions, aimed at giving viewers a soapbox to air their views.
Gore’s Emmy victory came just six months after he won an Oscar for his documentary feature “An Inconvenient Truth,” which is about how just real global warning is, and not a myth.
Gore, who lost his run for president in 2000, has repeatedly declared that he will not enter the presidential race for 2008. I’m hoping he has a change of heart. It’s still early in the game, and I think he could pull it off this go-round. Do you?
