    "WOW"

    This was an enlightening listen that made me glad he's out of the picture of relevance. Talk about losing sight of reality and self control over bitterness and hate.

    "Not a fan"

    I felt that his speach bordered on pettiness and seemed to be nothing more than a campagin speach for the democrats, typical democratic rethoric. I listened to Clinton's speach for his book release and he is heads and tails above Gore in speaking and communicating with a group. Again I am not a fan of either Clinton or Gore, but this was just rubbish.

    "Jane Fonda #2"

    Shrill and anti-war. Adds nothing to the debate, but throws out Vietnam type rhetoric. All noise with NO substance. America doesn't need this now or ever. Should be "0" stars, but can't do that.

    "Fantastic!"

    This man knows what he's talking about, and it's high time someone came out and told it like it is. Finally a statesman who can string more than 2 words together and make sense.

    "Can you say Psychological Break?"

    This speech based on hysteria is frightening when you realize he was almost our President.

    "Possibly Al Gore's best speech --- a must hear"

    A strong, well delivered speech on the Bush Administration, this is a must hear for all thoughtful Americans. Al Gore has put it all together in the best speech I can remember his delivering. Regardless of your politics, this is one speech you need to hear.

    "Amazing In Its Pettiness"

    Alternately shrill and lugubrious, Algore obviously hasn't taken his loss in 2000 with the grace of past candidates. Full of factual inaccuracies, misquotations, and questionable data. Wildly divisive, inappropriate rhetoric at a time when this country needs unity. A shockingly petty speech from a man who almost became the leader of the free world.

    "oh brother"

    It was great entertainment to see (hear) Algore act as if he wasnt still the Tennessee two by four. I think he was trying to pull a Dean. Can you imagine thinking you're still relevant after all this time? Yikes

    "Leadership and Integrity"

    This speech came on the heals of President Bush's speech, and the differences could not be more stark. Al Gore spoke with conviction and clarity. He told us the truth about the war in Iraq. He stated what should be obvious to us all that, a few soldiers did not decide for the US Government that it would ignore the Geneva Convention. Those orders came from the top.
    In contrast to Gores speech, Bush blamed the soldiers. And his solution, tear down Abu Ghraib and Court Marshal the soldiers.
    One of our past presidents said "The buck stops here." Our current president has changed that a little bit, the buck stops with Lynndie England.
    America needs to heed Al Gore's words. "We go to the ballot box, and we make it clear to the rest of the world that what's been happening in America for the last four years, and what America has been doing in Iraq for the last two years, really is not who we are."
