Inconvenient Truth: Gore won a Nobel, and Bush will host the winners

Former vice president Al Gore plans to return to the White House after Thanksgiving, apparently for the first time since leaving office, to be honored by the man who beat him seven years ago, reports today’s Washington Post.
President Bush regularly invites Nobel laureates for a handshake and photograph and decided this year would be no different.
Bush will host the five American winners of this year’s Nobel Prizes in the Oval Office on Nov. 26, including the winner of the Peace Prize, who fell 538 votes short of hosting the event himself. No word on whether the Supreme Court will be on hand to mediate in case of trouble, notes the Post.
