Gore expects the situation to “resolve itself” by the time the convention comes around.
MURFREESBORO – Former Vice President Al Gore said Thursday that he expects the Democratic nomination fight will “resolve itself” before the party’s convention in late August.
Gore told The Associated Press that he sees no urgency in endorsing a presidential candidate.
“What have we got, five months left?” he said in a brief interview after a speech at Middle Tennessee State University.
When pressed that several prominent Democrats, including Tennessee Gov. Phil Bredesen, have expressed hope for an earlier decision on the nomination, Gore said: “I think it’s going to resolve itself. But we’ll see.”
Sort of disappointed to see Howard Dean doing something a little different ..
“If we have an ugly, divided convention, we will lose. John McCain is not a strong candidate for president. The only way we lose is if we are divided.”
I think Gore’s got the right frame here, the correct vision to adopt. Dean should be backing away from even giving the appearance that Democrats will be anything but united, come August.
