Gore Set to Endorse Dean

A published report this afternoon says that Al Gore will endorse Howard Dean tomorrow in Harlem, and then campaign with him in Iowa. The Dean campaign declined to comment on the report, which I assume means it is true.
This is total, rank speculation, but I’d guess that Gore’s eagerness to endorse Dean at this early stage reflects hostility between him and the Clintons. The most likely alternatives to Dean, at this point, appear to be Clintonite Wes Clark or a draft-Hillary movement.
DEACON offers his rank speculation: Your take on the endorsement may well be correct. Here’s another possibility. Gore, an early victim of Bush derangement syndrome, likes Dean best because Dean hates Bush best.
