Gore endorses Obama

Now that the Democratic nominee is no longer in doubt, Al Gore will endorse Barack Obama tonight at a rally in Detroit. Back in 2004, Gore had endorsed Howard Dean before the official start of the primary season, after which Dean’s campaign derailed and John Kerry swept through the nomination. Many believed Gore stayed neutral in the 2008 primaries so he could help guide and reconcile the party if it become contested, and he may still have a role to play before the convention.
