WASHINGTON (CNN) - A spokeswoman for Al Gore says the former vice president is not meeting Tuesday with President-elect Barack Obama about a position in his administration.

The meeting between Obama, Gore and Vice President-elect Joe Biden had unleashed speculation about Gore's role in an Obama White House.

The Obama transition office said Monday that the meeting would focus on issues relating to energy and climate change and how the new administration's environmental policies can spur job creation.

Democratic officials have said Obama is not looking to tap Gore for a Cabinet-level post or any other position in the administration.

    I often wonder how much better off the U.S. and the world would be right now if Al Gore had won in 2000. Too bad the Supreme Court gave it to Bush. And look at the mess we are in because of that decision!!

    Oh darn... I was really looking forward to Al "the robot" give one of his monotone speeches. Now he can still preach about global warming, carbon footprints, and other crap from the comfort of his gas-sucking private jet!

    "Fat" Albert Gore should have stayed home. I cant believe he contributed that much pollution and to our global warming going to Chicago just so King Obama could have a press conference!

    The Obama Administration is looking like the biggest enemy of the Environment ever.
