An Inconvenient Visit

Oh boy, this must've been awkward: a triumphant man of peace visits an unpopular man of war.

Gore was among the 2007 Nobel Prize winners who were invited in for a photo and some chatter with the president; Gore got the recognition for his work on global warming.

The two men stood next to other, sharing uncomfortable grins for photographers and reporters, who were quickly ushered in and out...

The two also had a 40-minute meeting in the Oval Office, part of Bush's effort to show some outreach to his longtime rival.

Bush aides said it was private and would not comment on it.

Gore, trailed by the press as he left the White House very publicly on foot, allowed that he and Bush spent the whole time talking about global warming.

"He was very gracious in setting up the meeting and it was a very good and substantive conversation," Gore said. "And that's all I want to say about it."
Raw Replay has a short video clip of the photo op here.

White House Press Secretary Dana Perino said she doesn't believe there's any "bad blood" between the two and that she knows "this president does not harbor any resentments. He never has."

Of course Bush doesn't have any resentments: the SCOTUS crowned him POTUS. Duh.

However, no word on whether he harbored any smirks.
