June 16 (Bloomberg) -- Former Vice President Al Gore will step off the sidelines and make his first campaign stop with Democrat Barack Obama tonight.
Gore, who made the announcement in an e-mail to supporters, will appear with Obama at a rally in Detroit that is scheduled to begin at 8:30 p.m. local time.
``A few hours from now I will step on stage in Detroit, Michigan, to announce my support for Senator Barack Obama,'' Gore wrote in a fundraising letter. ``From now through Election Day, I intend to do whatever I can to make sure he is elected president of the United States.''
That sounds like a good place for a conservative and/or a libertarian to avoid. Or anyone who is allergic to bullshit. The way those two are worshiped by the left wing, there will probably be more panties thrown at the stage than at a Tom Jones concert. If McCain wants to make a decent fight of it, he needs to find a couple of political idols to do the rah-rah cheerleading stuff for him. I'm missing Pat Paulsen more all the time.
