Gore Not Planning To Run, Not Ruling it Out

I think we have as definate an answer as we are going to have for the next several months on whether Al Gore is going to run. He doesn’t currently plan to run, but he’s not ruling it out. Reuters reports:

Former U.S. vice president Al Gore says he has “fallen out of love with politics” and does not want to run for president although he has not ruled it out completely.

“If I do my job right, all the candidates will be talking about the climate crisis,” Gore said in an interview with Time Magazine released on Thursday.

“And I’m not convinced the presidency is the highest and best role I could play.”

He added, “It would take a lot to disabuse me of the notion that my highest and best use is to keep building that consensus.”

Asked what it would take for him to run, Gore said, “I can’t say because I’m not looking for it. But I guess I would know it if I saw it. I haven’t ruled it out. But I don’t think it’s likely to happen.”
