Bob Scheiffer of CBS News’ Face the Nation, on Al Gore’s Nobel Peace Prize and running for President:
But here’s the part that gave me pause. When he won the prize, his friends said he really no longer needed to be president, the prize had vindicated him. He was now a respected, influential voice on the world stage. If he chose to run for president, they said, he’d become just another politician.
Well, that’s probably true, too. But isn’t it a sad commentary on what our politics has become and how we now view the presidency and those who seek it?
