The BBC is reporting that Gore has ruled out a run.
In an interview with Norwegian broadcaster NRK, he said he would not run for the White House again.
Mr Gore told NRK he wanted to focus on his climate change campaigning, which won him a Nobel Peace Prize last week.
It's hard not to see this as yet another example of Democratic wetness. It's nice that Gore wants to concentrate on climate change, but I'm having some difficulty imagining that being Mr Gore would have a more positive effect on that than being President Gore.
I am somewhat angry, in fact - and I suspect I won't be the only one.
