Al Gore made his debut in the 2008 presidential campaign Monday night, encouraging voters to back Barack Obama because “take it from me, elections matter.”
The former vice president’s speech at the Joe Louis Arena was part endorsement and part blistering attack on the man who denied him the White House eight years ago.
“After eight years of incompetence, neglect and failure, we need change,”
“After eight years when our Constitution has been dishonored and disrespected, we need changes.”
“I’m grateful Al Gore came to Detroit tonight,” Obama said. “But I’m ever more grateful for everything he’s done in the last 40 years for this country.”
