Gore expects Democratic nomination will 'resolve itself'

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) - Former Vice President Al Gore says he sees no urgency in endorsing a presidential candidate.

But he tells The Associated Press that he expects the nomination fight to resolve itself before the Democratic convention in August.

Gore made the comments after a speech at Middle Tennessee State University on Thursday. He didn't elaborate on how he expects the nomination to be decided before the Denver convention.

Neither Barack Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton is on track to win enough delegates in primaries and caucuses to clinch the nomination, so superdelegates like Gore could decide the winner.

Tennessee Gov. Phil Bredesen has proposed the nearly 800 superdelegates cast ballots in a two-day primary in June after the last voter primary to avoid a prolonged nomination fight.
