Until April 1st, there's only one game that matters in the battle for the Democratic Presidential nomination -- the donor's game. The contest to put up the biggest first quarter fundraising number possible is intense and is prone to misinformation and stunts.
Hence, James Carville talks talks and talks some more about Al Gore getting into the race. Let's boil this down to reality:
* Carville supports Hillary Clinton
* Obama is making a hard and fast play for Hollywood money
* An Al Gore entry into the race is the only thing preventing Obama from running the table on that money in this quarter.
End of story. Gore is not running. (Admittedly, I know nothing ... but neither does Carville.)
