Dems To Trot Out Fresh Face & New Party Leader At Progressive Conference…Just Kidding
Much has been written about how Democrats have no leader at the helm of their rudderless ship, but that may be about to change. Netroots Nation, a major conference of far-left extremists, just announced who is headlining their gathering this year and it could be Democrats ace-in the hole.
Just kidding…it’s Al Gore.
The same Al Gore that was Vice-President when Nirvana was releasing hit singles and was at the top of the ticket for Democrats while Michael Jordan was lacing up his sneakers with the Washington Wizards.
Having to roll out a washed-up politician who ran for President more than a decade-and-a-half and was first elected to office during the Carter Administration as the marquee attendee of a major event is the perfect metaphor for the state of the Democratic Party in 2017. They have no fresh face, an outdated message, and no direction back to relevance.
That said, Gore is 9 years younger than current Democratic front-runner Bernie Sanders. Perhaps Gore 2020 isn’t so far-fetched.
