Gore to lead Current TV debate coverage

Former Vice President Al Gore, who 12 years ago was talking “lockboxes” while debating then-Texas Gov. George W. Bush, will be analyzing the first presidential debate between President Obama and GOP nominee Mitt Romney.

Current TV announced Wednesday that Gore, who serves as the liberal-leaning cable outlet’s vice president, will head up its coverage of the Oct. 3 debate in Denver.

Gore will lead a roundtable featuring other Current TV hosts, including former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm (D), former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer (D), Cenk Uygur and John Fugelsang, according to a statement from the network.
