Last night, in another of a series of speeches sponsored by, Al Gore spoke to 900 people at New York University in a talk that was interrupted by applause more than a dozen times. Gore accused President Bush of “utter incompetence” on Iraq, adding that the president had “made the world a far more dangerous place and dramatically increased the threat of terrorism against the United States.”

As Maureen Dowd noted in her New York Times column today, Gore’s remarks represented “one of the most virulent attacks on a sitting president ever made by such a high-ranking former official.”
