We'll take it as a maybe: Al Gore, speaking Monday at Middle Tennessee State University, sounded awfully equivocal about his plans to make another run at the presidency. "I'm enjoying what I'm doing," said the man who beat George W. Bush in the popular vote in 2000. "I'm not planning to be a candidate again. I haven't reached a stage in my life where I'm willing to say I will never consider something like this. But I'm not saying that to be coy; I'm just saying that to be honest -- that I haven't reached that point."
