Though former Vice-President Al Gore has repeatedly insisted he has no plans to run for president in 2008, many refuse to count him out of the running, NBC’s “The Today Show” reported this week.

Gore, who continues to make waves with his global campaign to raise awareness about climate change, has come under increased scrutiny in recent months as the presidential race begins to pick up steam.

“Some believe Al Gore would be the perfect choice, a mix of the rock star appeal of Barak Obama and the political experience and money raising muscle of Hillary Clinton,” said NBC News’ John Yang. Despite not being in the race, Yang pointed out, Gore stands in third place among Democratic contenders in recent polls at 16 percent.
