To Al Gore last night at UB's Distinguished Speakers Series. I was hoping for something different, but he did his "Inconvenient Truth" presentation, which really is pretty powerful. I never thought he was all that wooden to begin with-- cautious was his problem, and when he was VP he could cast that aside and really tear it up. In a September 06 New Yorker piece on Bill Clinton (I picked it up thinking it was current-- its a Collyer Brothers existence around here) ol'Bill talked about the necessity of "leaning into" Republican attacks. Gore gets that now, and was really effective. During the Q&A that followed a UB student got on her knees and begged him to run, perhaps not the best position to make that particular request, but I join in the sentiment.
