Gore Endorses Dean

Josh Marshall is stunned.

Bloggers everywhere are agog.

At CalPundit and at Daily Kos, armchair pundits (much like myself) read elaborate Machiavellian intentions and ramifications into the move.

In case you don’t know what I’m talking about, Al Gore has apparently decided to endorse Howard Dean tomorrow.

To me, this is unexpected, but not mystifying or nonsensical, by any stretch. Over and over again these past few months, Gore has indicated a desire to reach the exact same demographic that is currently falling all over itself for the good doctor — the young, tech-savvy, anti-war types that continue to make people stand up and notice Dean’s campaign. Gore’s and Dean’s most prized audiences align almost perfectly; it seems like a perfect fit to me.

Why all the shock?
