I mentioned in some comments the other day that I would be attending the Gore/Boxer fundraiser reception at the St. Francis in San Francisco on Thursday (tomorrow). I was planning to liveblog it, or at least post a diary after it was over.

But five minutes ago I received an email from Barbara Boxer, saying that Gore asked to reschedule at the last minute so that he could "travel abroad tomorrow for an exciting and urgent mission that could result in a major breakthrough in the fight against global warming".


The whole email is here:

Dear Mark,

I just got a call from Vice President Al Gore. He told me that he needs to travel abroad tomorrow for an exciting and urgent mission that could result in a major breakthrough in the fight against global warming.

Unfortunately, this means that we must postpone our Thursday, October 11th event with him until Friday, November 9th.  But he wanted me to tell you that he can't wait to talk to us about his trip when he comes back to San Francisco in three weeks.

While I am really disappointed that we won't see Al Gore until next month, I am thrilled that he is continuing to provide critical leadership to address one of the most pressing issues of our time.  You should know that only the most urgent global warming mission has called him out of the country.

I apologize for any last-minute inconvenience that rescheduling our event may cause you, but I look forward to seeing you on November 9th so we can all hear first-hand about Al Gore's latest exciting initiatives.

Thank you so much for your continued friendship and support.  See you in San Francisco next month!

Barbara Boxer
U.S. Senator

I wonder if this has anything to do with the fact that the Nobel Peace Prize will be announced late Thursday night (actually at 2am Friday morning, Pacific time)? I will post more if I can find further information.

Update: The betting odds in Sweden are 4-1 in favor of Gore getting the Nobel, btw :-)

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
