Stephen Colbert interviews Al Gore:
COLBERT: “Rick Perry endorsed you in 1988. Will you return the favor right now and endorse Rick Perry?”
GORE: “Well, it would hurt him a lot, in a Republican primary.”
COLBERT: “So, is that an endorsement?”
GORE: “No, it’s not.”
COLBERT: “So because an endorsement would hurt him and you won’t endorse him, isn’t that, in itself, an endorsement?
GORE: “You could put it that way.”
