Someone finally extended a deadline for Al Gore! Glen Johnson wrote in yesterday’s Boston Globe:
At 52, Gore is still younger than most people who have become president. While his future is unclear, there is talk he may pursue an academic job as he mulls his political future. Harvard is said to have extended its time frame for seeking a new president so it can consider Gore, an alumnus.
The Gore-as-Harvard-president scenario was invented by Chatterbox, who is willing in this instance to waive his usual finder’s fee. Chatterbox still thinks it’s a good backup plan should Gore lose Monday’s Electoral College vote.
