Al Gore Endorses Obama And Promises To 'Help Him':
FLINT, Mich. - Al Gore announced his endorsement of Barack Obama Monday and promised to help the Democrat achieve what eluded him — the presidency.
In a letter to be e-mailed to Obama supporters, the former vice president and Nobel Prize winner wrote, "From now through Election Day, I intend to do whatever I can to make sure he is elected president of the United States."
In 2000, Gore won the popular vote but lost the disputed 2000 election to George W. Bush, who captured Florida and its electoral votes after a divided Supreme Court ended the recount. Since then, Gore has made combatting global warming his signature issue, and has been recognized worldwide for his effort — from an Academy Award for a documentary for his effort to the Nobel prize.
Don't you love how the AP worked in that 'Gore won the popular vote in 2000' line? Look, more of the same here, this will do nothing except tie Obama to old party politics and hurt his campaign. How can you push for 'change' whilst hanging tight with the old guard? It makes no sense. Then again, Al Gore never makes much sense.
