Maybe it's time to shift strategy. Change our battle plans. Instead of "Run, Al, Run," we need to now alter our tune to "Please, Tipper, Please."

Al Gore knows we love, respect, and honor him. How can he not be emotionally overwhelmed by the outpouring of good will and favorable press in recent days?

The Draft Gore movement is peaking. It's past the 200,000 mark for online signature. It's right near the tipping point. And the clock is ticking. Gore needs that one fnal push before he could conceivably commit to running for president. Who can make that happen? His wife. She's the Tipper Point.

She must be persuaded to persuade him to run. She's got a psychology degree. She'll know what to say or do.

Online and elsewhere, our collective media effort and energy must now be directed towards her as well. Bloggers and pundits, take note.

Perhaps we need to create a sister online petition drive centered on her. That should count for something.

Gore once told Rolling Stone during his ill-fated 2000 White House run that "Tipper keeps my shoes nailed to the floor so that I don't lose touch with gravity."

C'mon, Al, win one for the Tipper. And for all of America. Turn the White House into a a Gore household. And then, use the office of the presidency to trumpet the fight against global warming.

Make the White House into an eco-friendly Green House.
