Gore endorses Obama

. Al Gore has broken cover and offered his support to Barack Obama. In a letter reported on Real Clear Politics he said;

"From now through Election Day, I intend to do whatever I can to make sure he is elected president of the United States."

His website, Algore.com, even calls for donations to the Obama campaign;

"With the help of millions of supporters like you, Barack Obama will bring the change we so desperately need in order to solve our country's most pressing problems."

This is the first time he has asked for funding for a political campaign on the site. It also comes complete with the banner headline 'Join me and support Barack Obama'. I have to confess, in general I am an Al Gore fan and am decidedly of the opinion that Obama could do alot worse than have him as his running-mate. It seems here he has gone beyond the normal supportive noises...could this be an indication that Obama is courting him for that spot??
