I just read Gore's speech on Iraq. What a welcome change it is to read an adult, intelligent -- and intellectually honest -- discussion of a complex and dire problem. Gore's speech is the most reasonable and clear-headed analysis I've seen to date on Iraq and its relationship to the war on terror. Gore's speech makes the excellent point that giving Bush a blank check would not be the most effective way of combatting either terrorism or Iraq.

You don't have to be much of a psychic to predict the GOP's response. Rather than engage Gore on the substance of his criticisms, look for ad hominem GOP attacks on the irrelevancy of Gore and boasts about how the country is behind the President in his war on evil.
