CNN) -- Former Vice President Al Gore endorsed Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama on Monday, urging Americans to reject what he called the
Bush administration's legacy of "incompetence, negligence and failure."
In Detroit on Monday, Al Gore endorsed Sen. Barack Obama for president.
"Americans simply cannot afford to continue the policies of the last eight years for another four," Gore, the party's 2000 presidential nominee,
told Obama supporters at a rally in Detroit, Michigan.
Perceived as a senior statesman in the Democratic party, Gore brings a certain force to Obama's campaign, political analysts have said.
You know, that looks like a pretty cosy relationship there, could gore be a possible runner for VP?
Surely Obama knows that the environment is a pretty critical factor, and while the US cannot be to influenced by environmental decisions, I feel
having a VP soley dedicated to the environment could be a positive situation.
Obama knows people like Gore, I mean he won the 2000 election after all.
People know Gore's position on the environment, and his abilities.
