So much for all the "the Democratic establishment hates Dean and will never support him" stuff

I think it's hard to get more "establishment" than Al Gore. Hopefully his announcement will do two things: 1. narrow the field and get the naysayers to quit piling on Dean--at least on the charge that he is a fringe wacko (the stuff about him being too much of a centrist fiscal conservative actually helps, I think); and 2. on the other side, get the Dean camp to quit dumping on the party as out of touch and focus exclusively on the real opponents.
