First the nominations. Then selling out stadiums. And now, Al Gore has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Honestly, this just seems to get more and more bulletproof. The Nobels, as the article said, are chosen in November and announced in December. Thanks to the accelerated primary schedule, many bellwether states will be holding their primaries around February.
It is concievably possible that Al Gore will go into those early primaries having just won the Nobel Peace Prize a few months earlier. Unless Hilary saves the world from an asteroid hit with her laser vision or something, she's going to be REALLY hard pressed to compete with that.
Campaigns or no, the stars seem to be aligning for Gore/Obama '08.
