For quote of
the day Talking Points nominates these choice words Democratic strategist David Axelrod told the Philly Inquirer's Dick Polman
"[Al Gore] has fought his heart out, and he is getting an agonizing lesson in the unfairness of life. He knows in his own mind that he really won it, and that he was foiled by surreal circumstances. He has to process all that. The most difficult task of all is letting go."
Talking Points hasn't quite, totally, absolutely, positively, completely lost hope. But, ya know, we're getting close.
