If Al Gore's speech to the 7th Jeddah Economic Forum is any guide, Democrats are so desperate for powerful allies they're willing to suck up to those who would kill us:
“The 21st century has to be a century of renewal, and our ability to overcome these kinds of cycles of disrespect and violence is the key to making it a century of renewal,” he said, alluding, like many other speakers at the forum, to the recent controversy that erupted over caricatures of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).

Commenting on the negative Saudi image in America and the treatment meted out to Saudi nationals and Muslims in the US after the tragic events of Sept. 11, 2001, he said that he and his Democratic Party colleagues have always opposed illegal detentions of Arabs and other people in the United States.

“Unfortunately there have been terrible abuses and it’s wrong,” said Gore, adding that there were people even in the current Republican administration who have worked to protect the human and civil rights guaranteed in the US Constitution, and to expose abuses that have occurred following the Sept. 11 attacks. He also criticized the thoughtless manner in which visas for Arabs are now handled.
This is quite a departure from item number eight on the list of the Top 10 Reasons Why Al Gore Would Be a Better Wartime President Than George W. Bush (originally published soon after 9/11 at, the link for which is dead):
Al Gore would not be publicly battling with Israel. With the help of Joe Lieberman, Gore would be working constructively with Israel to improve Israel’s security while making progress towards a Palestinian state that would not threaten Israel. Gore would not be holding back on criticising terrorist-coddling countries like Saudi Arabia, which have allowed millions of dollars to flow to Osama Bin Laden and Al Qaeda.
Here's a scary thought for you: President Gore.

"President Gore" is a terrifying thought! He has shown himself to be a sore loser; as a winner he would be insufferable. And probably worse than Jimmuh Cahtah.
