Draft Gore - A People's Movement
We are grassroots Democrats from across the country who believe Al Gore is the true voice of our party and the only leader and statesman who can return the White House back to the American people.
We are not affiliated with any candidate or political party. Our supporters include members of Democratic Party organizations at all levels, but we take pride in being truly a grassroots movement -- one that's neither financed nor orchestrated by the powerful, but that builds on the enthusiasm and passion of the American people.
History of Draft Gore
In 2002-03 Draft Gore mounted a large-scale effort to draft Al Gore for the Democratic nomination in 2004. Thousands of people in every state worked actively in support of that campaign, which received considerable attention from the media. At the end of 2003, out of respect for Vice President Gore's wishes when he endorsed Howard Dean, we brought our effort to an end.
Since then, the crises facing our country and the world have only worsened. Democrats, both at the grassroots level and in elected office, told us that Al Gore's voice and vision offer us the best chance to reclaim our country and to fight again for the values our party has historically stood for. That's why we restarted the campaign in early 2006 and mounted a historic effort to try to draft Gore for 2008.
We still believe that that the man who was the people's choice for President in 2000 will make a great president someday. And depending on the dynamics of the Democratic race in 2008, many suggest that this may turn out to be Gore's year after all.
