A sloppy wet kiss for the superest superdelegate of them all. The game has changed — a lot — since the last time this subject came up, but the essential question remains: Is the cabinet big enough for two Jesuses?
Democrat Barack Obama said Wednesday he talks regularly with former vice president Al Gore and would consider putting him in a Cabinet-level position or higher.
A woman at a town hall asked the Illinois senator if elected president would he consider tapping the former vice president for his Cabinet, or an even higher level office, to address global warming.
“I would,” Obama said. “Not only will I, but I will make a commitment that Al Gore will be at the table and play a central part in us figuring out how we solve this problem. He’s somebody I talk to on a regular basis. I’m already consulting with him in terms of these issues, but climate change is real. It is something we have to deal with now, not 10 years from now, not 20 years from now.”
After winning a Nobel and becoming the political heartthrob of every leftist in America, Gore must be jazzed at the prospect of playing second fiddle for another eight years to a politician vastly more charismatic than he is. “National Climate Change Czar Al Gore”, though?

Exit question: One of the most polarizing politicians in America, who recently compared global warming skeptics to “flat earthers,” is going to help spearhead the politics of healing and bipartisanship?
