Who Will Gore Endorse?

Assuming that Al Gore has been honest about having no "intention" to run for president this year, the only real question for this nation's newest Nobel laureate is who he'll endorse.

Two candidates -- John Edwards and Barack Obama -- are working the ref. Gore has met privately with both men, and the two were the first to e-mail congratulatory statements upon the news of Gore's Nobel dropping. (Edwards's campaign hit the trigger at 5:17 a.m.)

When will Gore endorse? His associates say the assume it will be in December.

Unless his "intentions" change.
