Al Gore Knows His Hockey

12/13/2007 at 4:04pm EST

Responding to Canada’s current stance against signing onto a reduced- global warming initiative, Al Gore turned to hockey to explain his position. From the CP (via UN Dispatch):

“One of the most famous ice-hockey players in history was asked the secret of why he was so good,” Gore said. “He was the best passer in the history of the game, Bobby Hull. Others might disagree (and say) Wayne Gretzky.

“And he said in response to the question: ‘I don’t pass the puck to where they are - I pass the puck to where they’re going to be’.”

“Over the next two years, the United States is going to be somewhere it is not now. You must anticipate that.”

Whatever your politics, somehow I find it’s always easier to like political types who know their hockey. Hell, even George Bush knows how easily swayed I am.

Good thing I’m not a U.S. voter. :)
