Bill Clinton: Most Influential Person of the Left
Anyhow, the Telegraph seems to think so. I disagree. Right now, I think Al Gore is. He is the preferred candidate of the grassroots. He essentially engineered two of the major policy positions for the Democratic Party, two that really seem to motivate the party: the Iraq War and Climate Change. He has won the Nobel Peace Prize, an Oscar, and an Emmy in the last year making him a bonafide celebrity. At this point he has captured the Democratic Party's Mind and Soul, all he is lacking is its purse and that is because he has not entered the ring.
