Low and behold I ran into Al Gore again last night on Charlie Rose. Obviously the discussion centered on the film but some themes were expanded. The tipping point discussed was a 10 year grace period that Gore firmly believes we have - God I hope it is more than that. He still thinks radical change is possible which is an optimism I wholly embrace even if I don't fully believe it. Being a "half-full" person ain't so easy for me these days. The whole time you watch the interview you realize just how poorly our government is performing and just how disasterous a mistake it was to have Bush enter the White House. The race should have never even been close. Gore again comes off as flexible and agile of mind and quite honestly, a very feeling person. Some might call it Presidential.
Here's the episode if your interested - Al Gore on Charlie Rose.
