He said he would involve former Vice President Al Gore in efforts to address the issue. "I would tap him, I would tap people who have been involved in these issues for many years." McCain noted that he disagreed with the Nobel Peace Prize winner about nuclear energy but added, "I have great respect for Al Gore."

Oh no worries....I will only vote for McCain/Palin!
I have no respect for Al Gore Junior. From the PMRC to his back stabbing of Dan Quayle to his defense of Bill Clinton to his claims of no controlling legal authority and a weak bladder to “everything that is down is up” to “I invented the internet” to this whole myth of man made global warming...
I want this foolish college dropout stoner defamed as Senator Joseph McCarthy was wrongfully discredited.
I am really hoping that you’re right and this is just a vote-fishing strategy. One of those sorts of comments where “my esteemed colleague” = “that jerk over there.”
But knowing McCain’s position on climate change, I have a nagging feeling that his respect for Gore is too great for comfort...
Anybody who can say all the stupid sh*t he does and keep a straight face oughtta be able to clean up at high-stakes poker!
Some of the people McCain ‘respects’ really bothers me...Kennedy...Clinton....now Gore? The only person in this race who doesn’t live in a politically controlled bubble is Sarah Palin. Or at least she was if they haven’t ruined her already.
It isn’t gore’s stance of finances that scare me, it is “conceding” the issue that Ameirca is “to blame” for “global warming” and “weather trends” and the notion that we must all invest in bogus “carbon offsets”, pay higher sin taxes, and give up our own air conditioning units and traditional light bulbs and toilets.
I was not going to vote this year but have changed my mind and now will vote for Sarah Palin.
I think that McCain knows this and is using her to keep us true conservatives in line while he goes after the soft center.
I don't like it but I understand.
Sure he’s stable. This is what John McCain has been as long as he has been on the public scene. He was the only Republican in the Keating Five debacle. He seems to author leftist bills with Democrats. He owns Democrat’s core beliefs on a number of issues.
This is John McCain, pure and simple. I know a lot of us wish he was otherwise. He just isn’t.
If you think it’s bad now, just wait until he’s in charge.
Yes, I realize Obama is worse. This is the worst political choice I’ve ever been faced with. Period!
Ku Ku...Ku Ku....Ku Ku’’’
Glad to know he does...but I sure don’t. Hope McCain is not gonna turn out to be another Dubya who plays nice all the time and gets slapped down. I wish it was the other way around on the ticket as Palin/McCain.
I figure it will hit McCain around Nov 5th. What the hell happened?
yes, i know... try with everything you've got to vote for Palin... she's really made a sacrifice to be a part of this campaign... she deserves to be compensated...
I am from Tampa Bay. This reminds me of rooting for th old Buccaneers 0 and 16 teams. UGGG
“Thats what you do in a close election, especially when you are courting Hillary voters who may have a soft spot for Gore.”
You’re right. Pander is the game. We keep hoping our candidates will just tell the truth. Silly notion, I know.
You would think that he would keep his stupid pie hole shut on the day his CONSERVATIVE running mate is making an all out effort to save his sorry ass.
FGS! Take off the velvet gloves!
