WASHINGTON (AP) -- Advisers to former Vice President Al Gore say it is unlikely that the Nobel Peace Prize and Academy Award winner will enter next year's crowded Democratic presidential race.
They say the odds are good that he will not risk his image and huge public platform with a return to politics -- not this year year, anyway.
Former President Carter, himself a Peace Prize recipient, tells NBC that he's urged Gore to run so many times that Gore finally told him, "please do not call me anymore."
In naming Gore a co-recipient -- along with a U.N. panel on climate change -- the Nobel committee said Gore's political activity, lectures, films and books have "strengthened the struggle against climate change."
