Former Vice President Al Gore has been chosen to deliver this year's commencement address at the Undergraduate Diploma Ceremony in May.

The announcement came last week in an e-mail from Director of Student Involvement Jeffrey Groden-Thomas, who advises the Student Council and assists the senior class officers in the process of securing a speaker.

The Board of Trustees, which has the final say in choosing the speaker, approved the selection in December.

I would think that where Gore is speaking is germane to the announcement. Even in the article, the fact that it's Hopkins is buried way down low. And then I had to follow the link in that article before I figured out that it's Johns Hopkins.

...your point?

Kermit the Frog generally does a Commencement Address or two, but you don't see me trying to get him elected President.

And with Kermit, at least you have some personality...

Re: What's...
I'd support Kermit... Although I can't stand his wife.

What's your point?

Everyone has some kind of personality. That alone is neither good nor bad. Bush, too, has personality. An idiotic one. And what a great president he is, right?

If you want "personality" go to an Oscar gala not to Washington. The presidency is a serious (and mostly damn boring) job. It's not for your special entertainment.

Grow up.

Don't quit your day job
Or better yet: get one.

(I have to admit: the one real bit of humor in the above post was a wingnut calling anyone crazy.  Sounds like Dean has some people a little worried.)

This guy is Democratic Dad...

who has been banned from kos and mydd

and who has attempted to change my password on both kos and mydd...

and has since been posting under the name nanorish in the lame attempt to make people think I am posting, however...since I am kind of new here (I have been on kos for years)nobody seems to care.

In any case, I think the matter will be taken care of soon.
