(CNN) – Former Vice President Al Gore has accepted a speaking role on the final night of the Democratic convention, appearing on the same stage that Barack Obama will officially receive the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination, three sources tell CNN.
It is unclear what Gore will say in the speech or at what time he will deliver his remarks before an audience that is expected to exceed 70,000 at Invesco Field.
The Obama campaign would not comment on the matter.
It's incredible after the primaries how Clinton's brand and Gore's brand are at different levels.
Al Gore is going to be VP, I just got the text message!!!
Thank goodness I won't be watching so I won't have to listen to the pompous wind bag!
Glad to hear Gore is speaking at the convention
he is a high prolfile player in the democratic party
Also glad to hear Barack is thinking of picking Biden
he has a lot of foreign experience and is well respected on the political scene
He will add a lot of experience to the Obama campaign and hes not afriad to put the mean spirited republicans in their place
Everyone could take some advice from rev Rick Warren and be less negative and more about the issues
(deep, booming voice) The great Democratic father is speaking...
Is it just me or does the Dem Convention 2008 look a lot like the 2000 convention?
When will this idiot with a Bachelor of Arts in Government stop pretending he understands ANYTHING scientific. He has absolutely no right to speak in the field of science. It is a travesty for the field of climatology to allow him to continue presenting false conjecture and speculation. He has no understanding of chemistry or physics. It is offensive to those of us with post-graduate degrees in the field. No self respecting scientific journal would publish his jargon and lies, I do not understand why the mainstream media so happily follows him as if he is Brittney Spears.
Perhaps Keith Olbermann needs to extend his grow up speech to include Hillary and her supporters.
Grow up before its to late.
wow, of course they choose this loon.
Obama supporters all seem to be attacking McCain and saying McCain supports are closed minded. However, dont be hypocritical, Obama supporters fail to see any other reason besides what they have been fed.
Long live the Kult for OBAMA!
Go save the lost baby whale AL....no one cares what he has to say!
I hope he regrows that beard.
We can do it, Al Gore.
I wonder, will he arrive by limo or by bicycle?
They all wanted the vp spot. They all backed stabbed Hillary. I have no use for any of them. I hope that Hillary keeps her delegates and give Obama to think about, or can he think on his own.
The start of a new day in America!
I guess that means he won't be the surprise Veep announcement. Shame.
I love the tactics, the strategy and the use of formidable political concepts by Democrats to sustain a calculable surge against Republicans. Republicans are good tacticians and because their convention comes last, they have an advantage of seeing Democrats have their convention first. So Democrats you need to plan a convention that will withstand your convention plus Republicans convention
I'd like to nominate Al Gore, based on the speech I have not heard yet, for the Nobel Peace Prize, Nobel Prize for Literature, Academy Award, People's Choice, Emmy, Grammy, MVP, Conn Smythe, Cy Young, and any other prize out there.
The Tin Man cometh, vote for ManBearPig! I'M SUPER CEREAL!!!
If William Jones is right and Obama picks Gore for vp, here we go again. Obama is a loser. Hillary keep your delegates and win the nomination. Don't know what to think about Gore for vp. No wonder, I will never vote for Obama.
Thanks for the warning. I'll be sure to tune out that night since this bozo's on. No "truth" to this guy.
Anyone but hillary! Gore would make a great VP
Go for it, Gore. We love you!
Al is Back. Obama/Gore?
Nice to see Al around again.
