Gore back on the political airwaves
From CNN Ticker Producer Alex Mooney

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- For the first time since the 2000 presidential election, former Vice President Al Gore appears in a political television commercial for a California ballot initiative that calls for energy alternatives to reduce the state's dependence on oil.

The ad, launching Monday statewide on broadcast and cable channels, is funded by "Yes on 87," a group that is funded by environmental organizations, scientists, and business leaders.

Gore, whose documentary, "An Inconvenient Truth," on the dangers of global warming, has been a vocal advocate for environmental issues, fueling speculation that he is considering another run for the White House in 2008.
