New respect for Al Gore

On Martin Luther King Jr. day, Al Gore gave a speech railing against the Bush Administration for the huge executive power expansions it has made. Text of the speech is available here. I saw a few highlights from the speech, and he seemed stiff as ever, but the actual speech is quite good. Finally a politician talks about something I care about. Because of this speech, and his semi free-market environmentalist views, I would actually seriously consider voting for him if he ran for the presidency (or anything really). I have not heard any other politicians really discuss this extremely important topic.
