Al Gore still hasn't definitively ruled out a bid for the 2008 Democratic nomination for president -- and until he does, one hopeful
group is assuming no news is good news. California
California Draft Gore, a grassroots political action committee, has hatched a plan to get their reluctant candidate off of theoretical fantasy polls and onto a real-life primary ballot.
Capitalizing on a provision of the state election law which allows for any name to be placed on a ballot provided enough signatures in favor of that candidate are secured, volunteers will begin scrambling next week to get 26,500 registered Democrats -- 500 from each of California's 53 congressional districts -- to sign off on the former vice president before a Dec. 4 deadline.
Maybe he won't notice until it's too late....
