  • Last fall, in a speech on economic policy at the Brookings Institution, I called on the President to get rid of his whole economic team and pick a new group

  • And a few weeks later, damned if he didn't do just that - and at least one of the new advisers had written eloquently about the very problems in the Bush economic policy that I was calling upon the President to fix

  • So obviously I was wrong: changing all the president's advisers didn't work as a way of changing the policy

  • I remembered all that last month when everybody was looking for who ought to be held responsible for the false statements in the President's State of the Union Address

  • Vice President, thanks for joining us on Late Edition

  • VICE PRESIDENT AL GORE : Glad to do it

  • Less than a year from now, we probably will know who the Democratic nominee is, who the Republican nominee is for the president

  • Why do you want to be president? GORE : Well, Wolf, I haven't formally announced my candidacy yet, but when I do, I will lay out a vision of what I want to see in this country in the 21st century

  • BLITZER : Are you looking at some precedents, some previous examples? When Vice President Bush, for example, made his announcement? GORE : No, I won't base it on previous campaigns, I'll just look at see what seems like the right time

  • The question to you is, do you want to emerge from the president's shadow? GORE : Well, I don't feel like I'm in his shadow

  • I think the job of vice president is very different and very distinct from the job of president

  • And for the last 6 years-plus, I've concentrated on doing the best job I can as vice president to help he be the best president he can be
