(CNN) - Al Gore has a spot in a potential Barack Obama administration, the Illinois senator said Wednesday.
Asked at a campaign event if he'd consider Gore for his cabinet, Obama immediately said he would.
" I will make a commitment that Al Gore will be at the table and play a central part in us figuring out how we solve this [climate change] problem," Obama said.
Obama also said he talks with the former vice president on a "regular basis," and often consults with him on climate change issues.
Could Gore serve alongside Bill Clinton in an Obama administration? Last November, the Illinois senator said he'd offer the former president a job "in a second."
"There are few more talented people [than Clinton]," Obama said then.
