Chakra & Awe: Lagging in the polls, Team Hillary tries to enlist Al Gore to scare millennials into voting for her

**Written by Doug Powers

Hillary Clinton was back on the campaign trail Thursday after collapsing on Sunday and being put into a van while concerned handlers yelled for the driver to “take her to the nearest ER or preferably Chelsea’s apartment!”

Team Clinton has since started losing more ground in the polls and is obviously looking into ramping up the fear mongering with a man who puts the “I” in “climate Armageddon”:

Mrs. Clinton may also get an assist from one Democrat who has been largely quiet about the race, but can testify to the importance of resisting the third-party temptation: former Vice President Al Gore. Her staff has had conversations with aides to Mr. Gore about bringing him onto the campaign trail to emphasize the importance of supporting Mrs. Clinton if they want to make progress on combating climate change.

“I can assure you from personal experience that every vote counts,” Mr. Gore wrote in an email to The New York Times on Thursday, after a new CBS/New York Times poll showed Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Trump virtually tied. “The stakes are high for so many Americans. So I will vote for Hillary Clinton and I strongly encourage others to vote for her as well.”

It’s already been settled: If Gore joins Hillary on the campaign trail his Secret Service code name will be “Dimpled Chad.”
