That's right...the rightful President was invited to go to the office stolen from him. Boy, this had to be awkward. Bush has such a chip on his shoulder, I can't imagine him being a big enough man to keep from making some snarky or insulting remark.

The Swamp:

Al Gore slipped out the side door of the West Wing.

In his private Oval Office meeting with President Bush, the former vice president insisted that they had spoken about global warming "the whole time.'' It wasn't clear if the winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, who shared the honor for his work on climtate change, was serious.[..]

But Gore, calling the meeting with Bush "very cordial'' and "substantive,'' declined to elaborate on their meeting. "I'm not going to do an interview here,'' Gore said in his walk down the streets outside the White House. "I don't want to comment more.''[..]

Gore also has been outspoken in his criticism for other administration policies, most notably the war in Iraq.

The White House insists the president holds no ill will toward Gore, who carried his challenge of the outcome of the 2000 election to the Supreme Court.

"I don't believe so,'' Bush Press Secretary Dana Perino said of any "bad blood'' between the two. "I know this president does not harbor any resentments. He never has.''

Uh huh. Sure.
