Gore throws support behind Obama

FLINT, MI In a letter to be e-mailed to Obama supporters, Gore says Obama has united a movement over the past year and a half.

The former vice president also asks for donations to help fund Obama's effort -- the first time he's asked members of his Web site AlGore.com to contribute to a political campaign.

Gore is one of the most popular figures in the Democratic Party, but he kept a low profile in the primary campaign. He's planning to appear with Obama at a rally in Detroit Monday night.
