Is Gore's Nobel Win Also a Rebuke to President Bush?

Hosted by

The White House said today that President Bush was "happy" for Al Gore that he won the Nobel Peace Prize. But Democratic Presidential Candidate John Edwards said the event shines light on what he called "the most inconvenient truth of all," that "the selection of George Bush as president has endangered the peace and prosperity of the entire planet." When Jimmy Carter won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2002, some saw the Nobel Committee disapproving of Bush's plans for war.  The Committee denied it then and denies it today. But the award does raise questions about the politics of global warming, including the criticism of Gore's Oscar-winning film, An Inconvenient Truth. Matt Spetalnick is White House correspondent for Reuters News Service.
