From New York magazine:
The New York Times reports that Clinton staffers have been in talks with Gore aides about the former vice-president hitting the campaign trail to emphasize the point that she’s the candidate most dedicated to combating climate change — and to make the case against voting for a third-party candidate.
“I can assure you from personal experience that every vote counts,” Gore told the Times via email. “The stakes are high for so many Americans. So I will vote for Hillary Clinton and I strongly encourage others to vote for her as well.”
The news is a bit of a surprise, as Gore was one of the last Democratic figures to throw his support behind Clinton; he officially backed her with a tweet on the opening day of the Democratic National Convention. Politico reported last fall that they have a complicated relationship stemming from rivalries in the Clinton White House and the 2000 election.Best news Trump had today that did not involve a poll showing his rise.
Mercilessly mocked on South Park as ManBearPig, Gore represents the Global Warming Scare that a young generation of voters sees as government hype. In an anti-establishment year, here comes another Washington insider to support the Queen of Insiders. Gore would mean that the Democratic nominees in five of the last six presidential elections are campaigning for Hillary.
Meanwhile, Trump is out there on his own, scorned by polite society -- and drawing thousands of enthusiastic supporters to huge rallies day after day after day.
The Bushes hate him. Romney hates him. And depending on what the polls say, McCain hates him.
Voters love him.
Rolling out a magillionaire (a public official who magically is worth millions) to warn voters against voting Third Party is a great strategy for Democrats because those nagged voters now won't Third Party.
They'll vote Trump.
My new book, "Trump the Press," is a fun read that details how the experts missed the rise of Trump.
