I Know One Award He'll Be Keeping in a Lockbox

I originally had something fun planned to write about, but I'm swamped with homework (and a take-home midterm).

However, in case you haven't heard...
OSLO, Norway (AP) -- Former Vice President Al Gore and the U.N.'s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change have won the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize for their efforts to spread awareness of man-made climate change, and to lay the foundations for the measures needed to counteract it.

Gore, who won an Academy Award this year for his film ''An Inconvenient Truth,'' a documentary on global warming, had been widely expected to win the prize.

And, uh, that's about all I know.


Congrats, Al! Now if only you were running for president again...

A Gore Candidacy means a Hillary Presidency...which may not be a bad thing.

Oh well, congrats to the man who rightfully was the President-Elect of the United States. We could've had a Nobel prize winner for a President, and instead, we got...W.

Hey, if al gore ran, he'd win. I've been checking some polls, and he's got the ability to beat her. I think I'd go nuts for the man if he ran for president. I wish he would run, he could do a lot of good...
