Gore in 2008? 

It's the conventional wisdom that Al Gore is looking at a run for the presidency in 2008. Gore presumably endorsed Howard Dean so that he would become the torch bearer of the Democratic wing of the Democratic Party after Dean loses to Bush. But what if Dean doesn't even win the primary? When happens to Gore's plans? I think it's likely that if Dean doesn't get the nomination this time he'll run again in 2008, and most of his supporters wouldn't abandon him for Gore in that case. And of course the fact that Dean's poll numbers seemed to have stopped rising at precisely the moment that Gore endorsed him doesn't help Gore either.
