Democratic strategist James Carville told CNN Wednesday that former Vice President Al Gore should reprise his role as the No. 2 on a Democratic ticket.And if I were Al Gore, my only decision would be whether to sock or laugh in Carville's face next time I saw him.
"I think if I was Senator Obama I would say the biggest economic problem we face is the biggest national security problem and the biggest environmental problem," Carville told CNN's Wolf Blitzer on the Situation Room. "And if I were him, I would ask Al Gore to serve as his vice president, his energy czar, in his administration to reduce our consumption and reliance on foreign energy sources."
Btw, the "energy czar" idea is a good one—one that people considerably smarter and paid considerably less than Carville have already made—but there's no reason or particularly compelling rationale for its being run out of the vice president's office.
