Count Gore Out



As Al Gore makes comes to Miami for his first public appearance since winning his Oscar, the Buzz is inevitable: Will the winner of the '00 popular vote winner jump into the president race?

Not gonna happen, says his longtime friend and top fundraiser Mitchell Berger of Fort Lauderdale. Berger, a big John Edwards supporter, has talked to Gore about that repeatedly and says Gore has been perfectly clear he's staying out.

"Could people please understand that Al Gore thinks that the world's climate is collapsing and he is dedicating every ounce of his energy to do something about that,'' Berger said.
