Seems he forgot that he lost the election

Al Gore calls for the resignation of key Bush administration figures.

In the speech at New York University, Gore singled out Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and national security adviser Condoleezza Rice. He also included his former Clinton administration colleague, CIA Director George Tenet, even though he called Tenet "a personal friend" and "a good and decent and honorable man." But he said the U.S. intelligence community needs new leadership as well.
Al Gore obviously has the right to say what he wants, but I think he is damaging his own credibility.
Gore speech was sponsored by the MoveOn.org Political Action Committee, which has said it hopes to raise $50 million to beat Bush in November. Gore urged his audience to vote for Sen. John Kerry, the presumptive Democratic nominee.
MoveOn.org is pretty far to the left, way lefter than Clinton was and even lefter than Gore was during the 2000 campaign. I remember being very impressed with Gore's concession speech after the 2000 election. It was statemanlike and it sounded very sincere.
