UPDATE: MORE details from Andrew @ the NPI Advocate.
Ari Melber (The Nation):
Al Gore made a surprise appearance at the Netroots Nation conference in Texas on Saturday, joining Speaker Nancy Pelosi on stage to address progressive activists. "I feel right at home here!" he said as he took the stage, while Pelosi and conference director Gina Cooper looked on. Organizers kept the visit secret all weekend, guarding details as if it were Obama's Middle Eastern CODEL. Rumors only leaked hours before Gore's speech -- and the New York Times Caucus blog picked up chatter on the visit from Twitter updates sent by the tech-savvy crowd.Howie P.S.: If Nancy thought appearing with The Goreacle would eliminate the pushback, I guess she was wrong. Avi Zenilman has more details about Gore's remarks.
Anti-war activists also briefly protested during her remarks, saying she should be held accountable for not using her power to end the war.
