Al Gore says in a Globe & Mail interview:
I have great respect for President Barack Obama and his team, and I understand the extremely daunting obstacles they have to navigate. I’m under no illusion that more ambition on President Obama’s part would, by itself, correct the problems. But I think it is necessary. We are still in the early months of his second term and I still hear the words he used in his inaugural address and the words he used in his Union speech.
