On Saturday, I have to say that I was quite impressed with Al Gore and Live Earth Day. Although I did not watch much of the concerts, I did witness some of the musical talent he assembled and the large crowds of people he pulled together around the world. Additionally, the event was televised around the world in well over 100 countries.
It was truly amazing. Without being President, Al Gore has tremendously reinvented himself as a private citizen. He has become a “movie star” with his documentary, a best-selling author with his books, and become a world player and world citizen with his personal crusade to inform the world on the issue of global warming.
I have to admit to being inspired with what he has accomplished after suffering a devastating “loss” against George W. Bush in the 2000 Presidential election. I will continue to watch him in the years to come. It will be very interesting to see his influence or actions during the 2008 Presidential election.
