ABC News’ Teddy Davis Reports: During a Friday book signing in Washington, D.C., one of former Vice President Gore’s daughters seemed to go further than her father in saying that a 2008 White House run was not going to happen.

"He’s really not going to get in the race," said Kristin Gore when asked if she has any special insight into her father’s political plans. "He’s really liberated working on things he cares about."

The former vice president regularly says that he has "no plans to be a candidate for president." But by stopping short of a "so-called Sherman statement," completely ruling out a presidential run, speculation has continued to surround the future plans of the man who won the 2000 popular vote for president.

Kristin Gore was at Politics and Prose bookstore to discuss her recently published second novel. "Sammy’s House," in the words of the book’s promotional literature, is about a "courageous and klutzy heroine" who works as a health-care adviser to a newly elected administration.
