This was not a campaign speech

Today Al Gore gave a speech that was a call to action to American citizens to defend the constitution. Speaking to an audience at DAR Constitution Hall that was 75% full, Gore gave a speech laying out how Bush has set himself up as a tyrant. He specifically called on members of the House and Senate to uphold your oath of office.

His voice was nothing like when he was candidate, instead he spoke mostly on a low tone, sometimes with righteous anger. He had clearly made a decision to speak thought the applause lines in keeping with the seriousness of his purpose.

I will give a further report later.

Text of prepared remarks.

Thanks, Alice. Watching it on C-Span, it appeared that the speech was very well received.

Al Gore's speech was world class. It was very thoughtful and well researched. It wasn't a political speech in a way. It was about facts. And Gore had lots of examples and facts to describe to the folks in attendance. People loved it!

Alice and Paul, I have a feeling that you both watched history unfold right in front your eyes today.

Thanks for this great web site you're building. I've got another grassroots effort for Gore going on over at

First, we have an audio podcast of his speech, on our blog on our front page. But, more grassroots, we've started a wikimedia space where Al Gore supporters who want to see him run in 2008 can build a campaign site themselves, collaboratively. Please visit, and feel free to leave a link back to Grassroots for Gore at the site.
