"Is Al Gore headed overseas?"

I read that headline and thought, "YES!! THERE IS A GOD!"

Is Al Gore headed overseas?

From NBC's Chuck Todd and Mark Murray
Drudge linked to a San Francisco Chronicle blog post -- which noted that Al Gore cancelled a fundraiser with Sen. Barbara Boxer (D) because he was called overseas for a trip related to his work on global warming -- and speculated that Gore is Nobel-bound.

But according to a Gore spokeswoman, the former vice president is NOT headed overseas.

"The events (including Boxer's) in California were postponed because of a request to participate in senior level meetings on the climate crisis in Asia," spokeswoman Kalee Kreider tells First Read. "However, early Thursday morning these meetings were postponed. As a result, he is resuming his schedule in California including meetings on Friday with the Alliance for Climate Protection. Friday will be a normal long business day. He will return to his home in Nashville, TN on Saturday."

Oh well, at least I can add another reason to dislike Gore: Barbara Boxer. LOL!
