The new Apple, post-Gizmodo crackdown, a corporate bully with government in his back pocket.

The script has changed.
Pointing to Al Gore, parents throughout the country may be telling their children that if they study hard, lead good lives and not become president they could be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
Gore is the co-winner of this year’s Peace Prize for sounding the alarm on global warming. He shares the prize with the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
While Gore may have fashioned a grand comeback, a look at the post-defeat careers of other recent unsuccessful presidential wannabes shows that there can be life, a good life at that, after losing. All have found things to do, sometimes lucrative things, and many have held elective office, most often in the U.S. Senate.
All have continued in public life and some have remained in politics, most especially in the U.S. Senate.

The real phenomenon of Al Gore is how connected he has become despite (and because of) his losing the presidency.
Gore has forged strong bonds not only in politics, science and the international environmental movement, but in finance, high-tech and Hollywood.
