Not Quite Shermanesque

Nobody claims Al Gore is actually planning to run for President; the argument is that there will come a moment when he’s pushed, hard.

So when he denies that he’s “planning,” as reported by the AP, the news seems to me less what he’s denying and more what he’s not ruling out.

“I’m not planning to be a candidate again. I haven’t reached a stage in my life where I’m willing to say I will never consider something like this. But I’m not saying that to be coy; I’m just saying that to be honest that I haven’t reached that point.”
