Gore & Dean

Al Gore is backing Howard Dean for the Democratic nomination, according to the NY Times. The Times article talks about what a blow this is to Joe Lieberman, but according to Newsmax.com and Dick Morris it's really all about Gore's anger at the Clintons.

Meanwhile, George Will says Dean is "no thinker". Will's description combined with Dean's gaffes already in the campaign may mean (assuming he's going to get the nomination) that we may be spared a lot of the intellectual snootiness that we were subjected to during the Gore vs. Bush campaign.
