Only 537 days to go...

You mean actual military veterans might not feel the same way as guys like Rudy Guiliani and Mitt Romney?

But it is the duty of the commander in chief to lead the country away from the grip of fear, not into its grasp. Regrettably, at Tuesday night's presidential debate in South Carolina, several Republican candidates revealed a stunning failure to understand this most basic obligation. Indeed, among the candidates, only John McCain demonstrated that he understands the close connection between our security and our values as a nation...

These assertions that "torture works" may reassure a fearful public, but it is a false security. We don't know what's been gained through this fear-driven program. But we do know the consequences.
Meanwhile, Gore actually expands on his previous "I'm not planning on running, but who knows?" rationale: he hates politics, and he isn't really sure if that's going to change (via HuffPo).

Then again (also via HuffPo), he shouldn't jump in...there's no point: it's game, set, match Hillary.
