Among the gems in the Washington Post magazine feature on Al Gore last weekend was this little detail:
"Theres an aromatherapy candle on a coffee table near him, its flicker lonely and small in the still-chilly, mostly uncarpeted house. . ."
But wait! Theres more!
"As Gore talks, he periodically lets out the controlled exhale that yoga practicioners and women in labor know as the cleansing breath, a means of slowing down and staying calm"
Maybe hes just practicing his heavy-sigh act for a debate rematch with Bush.
Other punch lines welcome.
