I wouldn’t normally post about the latest round of Gore endorsement speculation, since nobody ever has anything new to say about it, but this comes from Steve Clemons, a D.C. insider who knows of what he speaks. He says a source close to the Clinton campaign told him that a rumor is running rampant that Gore is going to come off the fence and endorse Obama soon. Again, this is a third-hand account, worth only so much, but Clemons has credibility, so I thought I’d pass it on.

Also worth noting is the fact that Gore, as an ex-VP, is a superdelegate, and if Obama and Clinton remain neck-and-neck in delegates right through to the convention, the superdelegates will end up deciding the nomination. So sooner or later, Gore will have to reveal his preference. Why not sooner?
