“If nominated, I will not run; if elected, I will not serve.”

Al Gore, the Democrats' nominee for the White House in 2000, says he has all but ruled out running for president in 2008, saying the best use of his time is to educate people about global warming.

"I haven't made a Sherman statement, but that's not an effort to hold the door open. It's more the internal shifting of gears," said Gore, referring to Civil War-era general William Tecumseh Sherman. "I can't imagine any circumstances in which I would become a candidate again. I've found other ways to serve. I'm enjoying them."

Gore referred to words attributed to Sherman upon his retirement from the Army in 1884, which put to rest talk of a presidential run: "If nominated, I will not run; if elected, I will not serve."
