MURFREESBORO, TENN. Former Vice President Al Gore said Monday that he has no plans to run for president in 2008 but hasn't ruled out a future in politics.
"I'm enjoying what I'm doing," Gore told an audience at Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboroa, where he gave a lecture on global warming.
"I'm not planning to be a candidate again. I haven't reached a stage in my life where I'm willing to say I will never consider something like this," he said. "But I'm not saying that to be coy; I'm just saying that to be honest - that I haven't reached that point."
The Democrat lost the electoral vote to George W. Bush in 2000. Since then, Gore, who turns 58 next week, has occasionally delivered speeches on global warming and other political issues, often criticizing Bush policies.
