Carville Pushes Gore As VP

On CNN’s ”The Situation Room” this afternoon, James Carville pushed Al Gore as a vice presidential candidate for Barack Obama.

    CARVILLE: I would ask Al Gore to serve as his vice president, his energy czar, in his administration to reduce our consumption and reliance on foreign energy sources. That would send a signal to the world, to American people, to Congress, to everybody, that America’s getting serious about this horrendous problem that we face.

Carville’s suggestion is especially newsworthy because he’s been a longtime friend of the Clinton family, which have had an on again. off again relationship with Mr. Gore.
