Political Panorama: The Weekend

The Oscars: Al Gore will be walking the red carpet on Sunday and partaking in the after-parties, but he is not the one who officially accepts the best documentary award should “An Inconvenient Truth” win. That honor belongs to the film’s director, Davis Guggenheim. Nevertheless, there will be plenty of attention on Gore in the audience, what Guggenheim says, etc. The big question: How far does Gore get down the red carpet before someone asks him if he is running for President?

Meanwhile, in an interview with ABC’s “This Week,” former President Jimmy Carter says that should Gore run, he’d endorse the former vice president. “His burning issue now is global warming and preventing it. He can do infinitely more to accomplish that goal as in the incumbent in the White House, than he can making even movies that get, you know, that get Oscars.” He doubts Gore will make a run. Carter said that he’s pressured Gore to run so many times that, “He almost told me, the last time we talked, ‘Don’t call me anymore.'”

For Hillary: Following up on her visit to Los Angeles on Thursday, the New York Post reports that Warren Beatty was among her contributors, while Liz Smith predicts Jack Nicholson will back Hillary to spite David Geffen.

Late Night Laughs: Nancy Pelosi guests tonight on Jay Leno, which Joe Biden drops by HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher.”
