Time to collect my Gore bets
Some colleaues at Fletcher -- who shall remain nameless -- were convinced Al Gore was going to run for President in 2008. When informed of this conviction, I quickly put down bets.
This Fortune story by Marc Gunther and Adam Lashinsky makes me think it's time to collect:
The recovering politician, environmental activist, and Nobel laureate is adding another title to his résumé: venture capitalist. After "a conversation that's gone on for a year and a half," according to Gore, he has decided to join his old pal John Doerr as an active, hands-on partner at Kleiner Perkins, Silicon Valley's preeminent venture firm.

Gore has really pushed the global warming scam to new heights... looks like it's time for him to get a piece of the pie.posted by: Justin on 11.12.07 at 01:34 PM [permalink]
I read somewhere that either Iowa's or New Hampshire's filing deadline just passed. I think you can collect your bets, barring a divided nominating convention.
And Justin, speaking of betting, if you think global warming's a scam then I have some bets I'd love to make with you:posted by: Brian Schmidt on 11.12.07 at 01:34 PM [permalink]
