Jobs: Gore will become president if he runs

updated 05:55 pm EDT, Tue May 22, 2007

Apple CEO on Al Gore

Apple chief Steve Jobs recently spoke with TIME Magazine to reveal his opinion on the former vice president of the United States, Al Gore, with regard to the upcoming presidential election. "If he ran, there's no question in my mind that he would be elected," said Jobs, referring to Gore. "But I think there's a question in his mind, perhaps because the pain of the last election runs a lot deeper than he lets most of us see." Al Gore joined Apple's board of directors in 2003 and likely played some part in the Cupertino-based company's recent decision to reveal its environmental policies and plans for the future. Gore also led the committee that investigated Apple's recent stock options scandal, clearing all current Apple management of any wrongdoing. To critics who say they were surprised that Gore took on the lead role of the investigation, Gore simply replied "That's silly."

    Of course Gore would win

    He already won once in 2000. Too bad the Supreme Court pulled off a coup on behalf of the GOP.

    Pres Gore

    I think the only thing that could begin to undo the damage done to America by the current administration is 8 years of a visionary like Gore.

    Wouldn't it be nice

    to have a president who:

    -has an IQ greater than his shoe size -can speak in complete sentences -believes in science, reason and evolution -doesn't think Jeebus is going to magically beam us up into the skies so we don't have to give a s*** about trashing the planet -follows the Constitution -doesn't constantly embarrass his countrymen

    The TIME article

    Y'all should check out the pic of Gore's workspace in the TIME article. It's classic.

    So much clutter and three whopping 30-inch cinema displays.

    It's there in the printed issue. Took me awhile to find it online in this gallery of photos. It's the 20th photo in this collection: http://www.time.com/time/photogallery/0,29307,1622338,00.html

    Who Cares??

    Jobs needs to stick to Macs and iPods, he's clearly out of his element when it comes to anything political. Nobody cares about his ultra left wing thoughts except for other left wing nut jobs. As for Al, he's just another hypocritical politician that would get absolutely nothing done. Besides, he's already lost one election and would only lose again anyway.

    GFY Texas

    hey texas, everybody in the whole wide world except for the 28% Bush dead-enders despises your state's wonderful gift to tyranny, George W. Bush. If embracing rule of law, reason, science, and intelligent leadership makes us all ultra left wingers, then I will wear the badge proudly. Better to be an ultra left winger than a brain-dead ignorant Jesus-worshipping right-wing fascist a******.
