Gore gives Snow some wood in blogger conference call

Via Think Progress:

Tony Snow said today of Al Gore's new book: "I don't know if they're going to do a reprinting of the book to try to get the facts straight. The fact-checkers may have to take a look at it."Gore responded on a blogger conference call: "This book, unlike the President's State of the Union Address, has been fact-checked."Taylor Marsh has full audio of the call.
The conference call on Gore's new book, The Assault On Reason, was an hour long. It sounds like one hell of a book, from the reviews that I have read and from listening to Al Gore talk about it for an hour. And guess what, not a single "horserace" question-- imagine that Diane Sawyer! Gore was loose, lucid, and engaging, chuckling throughout the conversation while the bloggers asked questions. No need for me to ramble on about it, listen to the audio (mp3).

I bought the book tonight and am about a third of the way through.  It is remarkably lucid and his criticism of the Bush regime is all the more withering for it's restraint and detailed analysis.

There's no getting away from the fact that it's inspiring.  I get the sense that he hasn't decided one way or another regarding '08 but that he could be talked into running.

Couldn't agree more (I'm about 1/4 in). Inspired and inspiring. Really gives me the sense that the tide may truly be turning in the battle for the American soul. A coherent response to the media "freak show" has been coalescing for some time now, especially within the progressive blogosphere, but I think Gore just took it to the next level. I don't think he could be in the position he's in, and write a book like this, and NOT be seriously considering a run. Regardless, this is powerful stuff. I wish Kurt Vonnegut had lived to read it, I think he would have appreciated its humanity and idealism.
