Oh, Al

Al Gore makes an unambiguous statement in support of same-sex marriage.

I get that he can say things that other political figures can't, precisely because he is not running for elected office. And part of me likes him right where he is: the insider/outsider who is able to state what he believes is right and not worry about whether anyone is ever going to vote for him. Maybe he gets more done this way.

But there is another part of me that still wishes that he had made another go of it.
