Obama has earlier said that Gore is one of his advisors on climate change and there are rumours floating around that Obama want Gore to be his "energy czar".
But Gore has repeatedly denied any ideas off an official role in the Obama administration.
Sure, Gore as an "energy czar" would send a strong signal that USA is now serious about energy and the climate. But I do believe Obama can find other strong candidates for the job besides Gore. Because at the moment Gore is still very much needed in creating strong support among the public in USA for tougher environmental actions.
