Thoughts from a Yellow Dog Democrat living in Olympia, in the great BLUE state of Washington

I am a liberal because it is the political philosophy of freedom and equality. And I am a progressive because it is the political path to a better future. And I am a Democrat because it is the political party that believes in freedom, equality and progress. -- Digby

Sacramento Bee says CA "Hearts" Gore

From an article by Dan Smith - Bee Capitol Bureau Chief:
Former Vice President and 2000 party nominee Al Gore, who has waved off speculation that he may run again -- but has not ruled it out entirely -- pulled to within a handful of percentage points of Clinton when pollsters added his name to the mix.

"He is formidable in California," said Mark DiCamillo, Field Poll director. "He makes it a very close race."

The poll found Clinton with a comfortable 13-point head start over Illinois Sen. Barack Obama, 41 percent to 28 percent, with former North Carolina Sen. John Edwards lagging at 13 percent.

But when Gore's name was offered as an alternative, Clinton's support dropped 10 points to 31 percent, followed by Gore's 25 percent and Obama's 21 percent. Edwards fell to 8 percent.

He also noted: "Gore boasted the highest favorable rating -- 85 percent -- among the four top Democrats in the poll".
