What's going with former VP Gore?

Haven't seen or heard about him lately. Has he endorsed HRC?

4. He Waited Until Start Of Convention

 

I think it's very telling that he waited until then to endorse. He could have done it weeks earlier, when it was obvious Hillary was going to get the nomination.

There's no love lost between Al & the Clintons. We'll see if he says anything more, but I wouldn't expect him to actively campaign for her. Especially since he wants little to do with politics anymore.

6. Who can blame him?

He had the Presidency ripped from his hands in one of the most egregiously corrupt USSC decisions ever, and watched the country go to hell as a result. He wasn't the most inspiring high-level Federal office-holder we've ever had, but he would have made a President light-years better than W.

He's found success and acceptance as an advocate for progressive environmental policies. He's found his niche. If it doesn't include the Clintons, I suspect we should all be okay with that. (I'm with Hillary in 2016, BTW.)

7. Surely it was his call not to ask Bill to campaign with him ?

9. It wasn't the ultimate cause but a campaigning Bill

Just might have prevented that situation from happening. That was Gore's call.
