Former US Vice President Al Gore did the opening for Saturday Night Live last evening. In the bit, he spoke to a TV audience from the Oval Office as if he had been the US President since 2000. He was very funny and relaxed during his performance. Why couldn’t he have been like this six years ago?
While the piece was certainly entertaining, it was also bittersweet, as it gave us a brief glimpse of how things might have been if he had led the US. While it’s just hearsay, some are wondering if Gore is thinking about running for re-election in 2008.
