(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.
Here is what we need to see on that final nite: Gore, BOTH Clintons and Obama/VP, all with their arms around one another, smiling and chanting YES WE CAN" along w/ 70,000 supporters. Throw in Dean, Pelosi, even Reid etc but if we are to win we must be 100% unified!
Hillary back-stabbed herself by running an inferior campaign. she was mathematically eliminated well before PR etc... no one back-stabbed her at all. please get your information straight before subjecting the intelligent to your ignorant thoughts. let her keep her delegates, OBama is STILL the nominee!!! He's thinking about one thing, taking this country back to where we used to be!!
Gore is the real deal.
Al should be a special adviser to president Obama.
Funny how they say Obama was selected not elected. That is better then being rejected instead of elected like slick hillie
Hello Hypocrite.....How has your electrical bill been this summer. typical liberal do as I say not as I do
In 2007, McCain missed all 11 energy-related Senate votes considered key by the League of Conservation Voters, including votes related to automobile fuel economy, offshore Virginia drilling, refinery construction, renewable electricity mandates, energy efficiency, liquefied coal and support for biofuels. The absences prompted the League to give McCain a "zero" rating for the year—–WOW and he has the nerve to demand congress to "get back to work"…..this man is unbelievable.
Bill Clinton or Ted Kennedy aside, Al has become the most respected senior member of the Democratic party. He carries a lot of weight. He should get to speak.
Gore will probably speak about what he knows best...HOT AIR! Can the democrats do nothing but look backwards? The Clintons and Gore are yesterdays news. Obama is just another John Kerry (aka Jane Fonda), and lets hope the air-conditioning is working at the convention.
dont Democrat voters understand? Obama is farther to the left than Bush is to the right! Why should we substitute a extreme canidate for an extreme on the other end? You dont know what kind of america this will be under Obama. It will go further the other way and be JUST AS BAD! McCain is more middle lined. Just look at the conservative base. They are hesitant to vote for McCain because he is too liberal for them!
WAKE UP PEOPLE. STOP READING OBAMA's WEB SITE AND FIND TRUELY BIPARISAN INFORMATION!
Its amazing to me just how bitter Hillary supporters have gotten as if its Barack's fault why she lost. She lost, even with a 10,000 yard head start, because of her arrogance and that he is a better candidate. I really liked Hillary before this primary, but she hasn't served herself well. So to all you Clinton supporters, wake up, get over it, and support the next President Barack Obama
Gore is a great choice to speak on the same night as Barack. I think it's ironic that Gore is speaking on the last night of the Democratic Convention which will make a good impression. While George Bush is speaking on the first night of the GOP Convention because he will make a bad impression. They want him to speak, and then hurry up and get out of town. LOL And please, GW, don't take a picture with anyone on your way out. LOL What a difference 8 years make.
Go Gore, Go Barack.
I used to have a lot of respect for Al Gore, then he endorsed Mr. Arrogance in a suit. Now I just wonder if we can keep Al Gore in a "lock box!!"
this message is to debkansas:
If Obama loses this election, you can forget Hillary winning in 2012. She will fail to get any majority of the black vote. They will remember 2008 if Obama loses.
i just got another text message saying that Bugs Bunny is going to be Obama's VP

They all wanted the vp spot. They all backed stabbed Hillary. I have no use for any of them.
There has been no mention of Al Gore for the Office of V.P. and it would be very unlikely at this juncture. Hillary didn't manage her own people; much less her finances and threw out a desperate cry of sexism when it was apparent that her vile sewer campaign only turned away educated voters. Die-hard GOP voters aside, there are many more democratic, independent and cross-over republican voters to Hillary's '18 million' that have absolutely no use for her.
Love it, the Democratic Convention will be like no other.
McCain or George Bush couldn't fill a stadium if their lives depended on it. This will be fantastic. And don't allow anyone to tell you, Obama supporters that filling up an arena is a bad thing. They wish they could do the same thing. Boy do they wish people would come out for them.
Let's call a spade a spade. Barack is popular, and McCain is not.
He'll do for climate change what he's accomplished for Democrats.
Announcement: He's invented a weather changing machine.
Dare you to print it.
Will the windbag Gore be using public transportation or riding a bike there? I dont think so. The fat bloated Gore will arrive via private jet
AL GORE '08
Nice to know Al Gore will be speaking. He was cheated out of the presidency in his own right by the Supreme Court. He and Bill Clinton are both great elders of the democratic party.
Having said that, I can't support Obama regardless of who he chooses, unless that person is Hillary Clinton. I am sick of stupid men running, I mean ruining this country! They all stabbed Hillary in the back. I will never vote for a man again. Apparently, they only like women int he bedroom and in the kitchen. Ohhhh, smart women, how scary! Idiots. And yes, a woman vp for McCain would also help, unless it's that liar Condi Rice.
The worst day in 8 years was when George Bush took the oath of office. Gore would have been the better president. Everyone knows that now.
A good time to sleep!
Al Gore is going to try and sell his lies about humans causing global warming. It is a big making making scam for him.
This is going to be huge
Al Gore will not be the VP, I wish he was,but I can live with Biden.
To debkansas In the beginning I was backing John Edwards, because of his health care plan. When he dropped out I was backing Hillary, because of her health care plan. Then she dropped. Now I'm backing Obama, I like him, he was my third choice anyway and it is so important that the Dems. get back the White House. I can't go another four years like this that's for sure. So I'm asking all Hillary supporters to support Obama and unite the party, we need the things the Dems. and Obama can give us.
