Sources close to Gore said Ralph Nader has sought to recruit the former vice president to run as the candidate for the Green Party. They said Gore has not rejected the offer and was consulting with family and friends to determine the feasibility of such a candidacy. Insight
Hmm, I couldn’t imagine myself voting Green under such a scenario. But during that video conference with Nader he said Gore had no ill feeling about him. In fact he thanked Nader for liberating him.
This however does not mean an independent run by Gore is a bad idea, just not in the Green Party. The Green Party has done a wonderful job broadening its base beyond the environment, and running Gore would be two steps backwards.
