Edwards: Gore would be a 'very formidable candidate'
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- After meeting with union and community service leaders in New York City Tuesday, former North Carolina Sen. John Edwards answered questions about the possibility of former Vice President Al Gore running for president.

"At this moment I'll take him at his word that he's planning not to run for president and I think that's true," Edwards said. "I know Al very well but he's like the rest of us, he could change his mind and I think it remains to be seen."

"If he were to decide to run I think he could be a very formidable candidate," he added.

Gore's film, "An Inconvenient Truth," was awarded the Academy Award for best documentary feature on Sunday.

Edwards said he had seen Gore's film and "thought he was terrific."
