Gore Says Obama Will Protect the US Homeland from Lead-Tainted Toys and Poisoned Pet Food

Former vice president Al Gore attended a rally for Barack Obama on Monday and officially endorsed the Illinois Senator as the nominee and next President.

Gore told the crowd that Obama would make sure their children's toys and the food they feed their pets would remain poison free - an apparent swipe at President Bush for failing to protect the US homeland from lead-tainted toys and poisoned pet food imported from China.

"If you bought poisoned, lead-filled toys from China or adulterated medicine made in China, if you bought tainted pet food made in China, you know that elections matter," he said. "After the last eight years, even our dogs and cats have learned that elections matter."
