Environmentalist Democrats?

Was I not paying attention during the previous two presidential campaigns? I knew I was voting for the Democratic candidate, but I don't remember thinking I'd be getting super-environmentalists.

Gore ran with the whole global warming thing, and now it seems the Kerry's have tossed a book onto the bandwagon.

It's great to have high-profile people bringing attention to these issues, but it feels like some may be using these hot issues to maintain their high profile.

I just don't remember these people running on these platforms. I must wonder if the environment would have been as strong of a component in their leadership if Gore or Kerry had been elected.
