Sometimes I feel like the rest of the world has forgotten about Albert, but then a nice Christopher Hitchens article suggests that our favorite undeclared will come to the fore after he wins the Nobel Prize.
Of course, Mother Teresa’s biggest critic isn’t all smiles:
I remind you that Gore was once a stern advocate of the removal of Saddam Hussein, and that in office he might well not be the coward or apologist that the MoveOn.org crowd is still hoping to nominate. One has the very slight sense that he contains some unexpended political energy and has acquired some dearly bought political experience. At any rate, nothing could be worse than the present dreary political routine, and if it takes a Scandinavian kick-start to alter the odds, then for once one can hope that the heirs of Alfred Nobel will have a more explosive and catalytic effect than they had intended.
Crazier things could happen.
