A Man For All Seasons

About the only certain thing in life, besides death and taxes, is that politicians can be counted on to take the position opposite that of their rivals. Listen to Al Gore on the subject of Iraq in 1992 in the video below. What do you suppose politicians will be saying in 2012? The facts will have nothing to do with it. But politics will.

Its a dance isn't it? Spinning around and around in relation to your partner.

I can understand parties doing that over time but I have a harder time when a person does it. Sometimes people evolve they see things differently as they age and gain experience or new facts come to light, but I think most often for high profile pols it is an attempt to put themselves into positions of power.

Is it just me or doesn't anybody else think that Al Gore is remarkably unintelligent?

Yes, Herb, those of us on the right and left know, but it's an inconvenient truth for some :)

On second thought, :(
