Website gathers all things Gore, even as the big guy turns away from politics

Even though Al Gore isn't running for president, he still has a fan club. His fans have made an all-things-Al-Gore website where a user can get continuous news feeds, blog posts, campaign info and so much more, reports Tech PresidentGoreHub.

GoreHub.com is a one-stop news portal which has links to sites to draft Al Gore into the campaign, information on how to volunteer, an Al Gore video library and links to all the official campaign websites.

The site was started by Dylan Hassinger who, with the help of Google, RSS and Yahoo! Pipes, was able to put the whole thing together in "less than a week." Hassinger is also working on a Gore video library at YouTube.

If Gore does decide to run, he wouldn't have to look too far for funding. Because Gore is fairly prescient about many things including Google and Apple stock options, he's "become a millionaire many times over, bringing him, in financial terms, shoulder to shoulder with the C-suite denizens he used to hit up for campaign cash," wrote reporter Ellen McGirt in a recent cover story on Al Gore in Fast Company magazine.

"What politics has become," Gore told McGirt, "is something that requires a kind of tolerance for artifice and manipulative communications strategies that I just find I have in very short supply. I just don't have the patience for things that seem to be greatly rewarded in today's political system."

Judging by the fervor of his fans, there is no doubt that Gore is leaving the door open for a future run at the presidency.

"I do think that the Internet is bringing revolutionary transformation. I have not ruled out the possibility of getting into politics sometime in the future," he concluded, "but I don't expect to. Because I don't expect things to change. If they did change, then I would feel differently."
