Obama to Offer Gore Key Position

Barack Obama has made a commitment that Al Gore will play a "central role" in his Administration, particularly in the field of climate change. However, it is a little unclear if Al Gore is a possibility for the Vice Presidential role again.

Campaigning in Pennsylvania, Obama was asked at a town hall style meeting if he would engage Gore as part of his Administration.

"Not only will I, but I will make a commitment that Al Gore will be at the table and play a central part in us figuring out how we solve this problem." Obama said

"He's somebody I talk to on a regular basis. I'm already consulting with him in terms of these issues but climate change is real. It is something we have to deal with now, not 10 years from now, not 20 years from now."

Al Gore is yet to endorse either Obama or Clinton. He may stay out of it, seeking to stay above the fray. But there is speculation that if he was to endorse, it would not be Hillary Clinton.
