It’s good to be Evgenia Peretz. The Vanity Fair writer and daughter of former New Republic EIC Marty Peretz just scored an interview with Al Gore in VF‘s October issue.
The piece is also a long apologia by Gore for the 2000 Presidential campaign. Lots of background information is included on minutae of the campaign and the Love Story and “I founded the internet” fiascos. As Peretz puts it, “he’s not going to announce his candidacy in the last paragraphs of a Vanity Fair article.” However, if we were gambling types (and we are), we’d say it’s a first sign Gore is preparing some sort of press blitz for the 2008 election.
