    Al Gore's Nobel Peace Prize hasn't translated into an increase in support for a presidential bid, a poll found Tuesday.

    Asked if they would like to see the former vice president run for president in 2008, people said no by a 54 percent to 41 percent margin, according to a Gallup Poll. That was about the same as last March, when people opposed his running 57 percent to 38 percent.

    Even among Democrats there was no visible surge of interest in Gore. In the new survey, 48 percent said they would like him to run and 43 percent said they would not. Last March, Democrats were in favor of him entering the race 54 percent to 41 percent _ statistically the same as the new poll.

    I guess it is good for Gore that he continues to express no interest in running for president again.

    Of course he doesn't express it.

    Lots of candidates do much better in the polls before they announce, then go down hill once they do. I thought this might be the case for Fred Thompson at first, but maybe not.

    Not every Nobel Peace Prize winner is or should be a candidate for president.

    But a very popular loser. He's the highest vote grabber of all time in US politics.

    saturneptune, if there's any redeeming quality to the EC it is Gore's failed campaign. Well said.
