Al Gore takes inspiration to a new depth

"More than at any other time in history, mankind faces a crossroads. One path leads to despair and utter hopelessness. The other, to total extinction. Let us pray we have the wisdom to choose correctly."

So wrote Woody Allen in his satire, "My speech to the graduates."

Well, it turns out that three decades later Al Gore has done him one worse, for real, in the version below of Gore's recent address to a University of Tennessee graduating class...

The Obama Jobs Package - for Andrew Romanoff

Democratic primary "voters in Arkansas and Pennsylvania sent a loud and clear message to the U.S. Senate and we should, too," U.S. Senate candidate Andrew Romanoff told the Colorado Democratic Party state assembly, where he won top line on the primary ballot. "The message to our own party is this: stiffen your spine or step out of the way."

Romanoff should take his own advice and disclose everything he knows about a purported job inquiry made to him last year (reported by The Denver Post) that could have kept him out of the primary against White House pet U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet.

If it's smoke and no fire, Romanoff can clear the air now. If it's more than that, Romanoff should tell all and let the chips fall where they may. And if he doesn't tell all, and wins the August primary, he and the White House can expect a BARRAGE like the one descending on U.S. Rep. Joe Sestak, the party's Senate nominee in Pennsylvania.

"With all due respect on energy issues, I've seen energy...green economy, green this, green that, green-eyed whatever, green job training, green whatever, you name it," said Stephens. "I could probably add about 30 things that were stuck in bills this year to give the 'green economy' every break in the book rather than oil-and-gas, or other people who are creating tons of jobs."

State Sen. Betty Boyd, D-Lakewood, and Rep. Mark Ferrandino, D-Denver, spoke before Stephens, who was followed by Senate Minority Leader Josh Penry, R-Grand Junction.
