Afraid of defeat: Al Gore cancels DC trip on behalf of Waxman-Markey

June 25, 2009 reports that Al Gore has canceled what was to be a personal appearance on Capitol Hill today to lobby House Democrats on Waxman-Markey.

According to the Politico report:

“As the list of undecided Members narrowed, the Speaker thought it was unnecessary to impose on the Vice President’s schedule to travel to Washington, and instead to continue coordinating efforts from Tennessee,” spokesman Drew Hammill said in an e-mail.

Perhaps … or does Gore figure that the House vote will be so close that he doesn’t want to risk personal embarrassment in the event that Waxman-Markey goes down to defeat?

    Why travel when, as the Goreacle, you can urge on your legions of Gorebull Warming drones via streaming video?

    Please GO AWAY, Al.
