Al Gore Endorses Obama for President February 1, 2008Posted by chuckwh in News and politics.
In what pundits, talking heads, and bloggers are calling a stunning betrayal, Al Gore tonight endorsed Barack Obama for President.
“I do this with a heavy heart,” said Gore before a packed media throng at the Kodak Theater media center. “Hillary was my vice president, and she served me well. But dynasties do not serve any nation well, and, when someone with rare vision enters the American stage, patronage needs to be shoved aside so that we can welcome this new energy into this nation’s political life.”
Tonight’s debate was a showcase of two genuine talents, Gore said, but in the end, “it’s all about this weird, enigmatic thing called destiny, and who can tilt destiny more favorably into a righteous direction. And I believe, today, the candidate who can is Barack Obama.”
