Among those longtime Gore loyalists who munched on a buffet of sandwiches and salmon at the [Gore friend and ally Peter] Knight home: Longtime powerhouse Dem fundraiser and Democratic National Committeeman Robert Zimmerman; Knight’s wife, Gail Britton; Tom Hendrickson, the former North Carolina Democratic Party chair; Mary Pat Bonner, founder of the Bonner Group; Dr. Richard Boxer, a Gore adviser on health care; Alan Kessler, a former Gore fundraiser; and Roy Neal, former Gore chief of staff.

Forming a super-secret shadow campaign?!?1

No. They all agree he’s not running.

Sigh.
