CNN’s Fareed Zakaria talked to Al Gore who expressed a strong approval of president-elect Obama. “I can barely contain my excitement about his election,” he said.

Gore notes that even Republicans were proud of the election results. “This was a watershed election that really gave every American great pride in our nation’s ability to transcend our past and redeem the revolutionary promise of our Declaration of Independence that every human being is created equal. It’s electrifying to redeem that Declaration.”

CNN released a video clip of Gore’s interview. The full interview will air Sunday on CNN’s Fareed Zakaria GPS.

This video is from CNN.com, broadcast Nov. 20, 2008.
