Don’t know if you’ve heard, but lots of folks seem fairly convinced that Al Gore is going to win a Nobel Peace Prize on Friday. (Haven’t they heard about his house, and how he eats meat, and how one time he threw a bottle in the trash instead of the recycling?!)

Naturally, the U.S. media can interpret this only through the lens of the presidential race.

My take: Gore won’t run, even if he wins. But if he wins, his endorsement is going to be that much more valuable.

Who will he endorse? Should we start a betting pool? My money’s on Obama.
