Al Gore (Finally) Endorses Obama

Oh sure, the Gore-haters will have a field day, but so what? And yes, it was inevitable, completely predictable and hardly a profile in courage… Some may gripe that he should have provided his endorsement earlier in the race, but such people clearly have short memories and fail to recall that that his premature support was perhaps the proverbial “kiss of death” for the Dean campaign in 2004, marking the beginning of the end that the defeat in Iowa a few weeks later only served to place an exclamation point on.
