Politics An Anecdote About the Al Gore Event that Didn’t Make it into Tomorrow’s Paper

According to an employee at Elliott Bay Book Company, which organized Al Gore’s talk and signing last night at Town Hall Seattle, a bunch of Elliott Bay employees had to rush over some stanchions before the event started. They took a taxi. As they were riding over in the taxi with the stanchions, they got to talking with the cab driver. When the driver learned that the stanchions were for an Al Gore event, he refused to accept payment for the ride. Because he loves Al Gore.
Dude’s GOTTA run. He just has to. I’d hoped people would be chanting so loudly for him to run at last night’s event that he wouldn’t be able to get a word in edgewise. The only chanting was by LaRouchebags. Ah well.
Now please enjoy this picture of four would-be Gore voters in Town Hall’s lobby last night: Dan Savage, King County Councilmember Dow Constantine, Annie Wagner, and some tall guy. Bill Anthony took it.
