Hats Off to Al Gore

Filed under: Policy April 28, 2005 @ 7:26 pm

Ironically, a Republican freshman Senator who supports the party-line opposition to the filibuster here at home, recently returned from Iraq with an inspiring story about the formation of multi-ethnic democracy there. Reporting that he asked a Kurdish leader there if he worried that the majority Shiites would “overrun” the minority Kurds, this Senator said the Kurdish leader responded “oh no, we have a secret weapon…. [the] filibuster.”
— Al Gore

Whatever your political stance, whether you voted for him or not, Al Gore deserves enormous praise for his latest speech. This speech is, in my mind, the essence of what this country stands for.
