As you might already know, I’m fully in support of Al Gore getting reelected for President in 2008. I frequent a few different websites to keep tabs on my ideal presidential candidate in hopes that news will arise of his candidacy. Sadly, however, he has not (yet?) declared himself as a candidate. In defiance of this, the America for Gore Coalition has decided to take matters in to their own hands and started a “My Two Cents” campaign. I think its a pretty neat idea, so I’ve decided to promote it here as well, in hopes that anyone that may read this does what I’m about to suggest.
America for Gore is asking anyone in support of Al Gore to mail him two pennies along with a letter urging him to run, while also stating that the real financial support will come when he accepts that challenge. The hope is that the mountain of pennies that will soon pile up in his office will be a constant reminder to him that America needs him and is ready to support him. Sound like a good idea? Then go dig through your couch or car seats for two pennies, get an envelope and a stamp, type up a quick letter urging him to run, and send your two cents to the following address:
Office of the Honorable Al Gore
2100 West End Avenue, Suite 620
