Lots of hubbub about former Vice President Al Gore running for president in 2020, from the overflow crowd at Wednesday night's D.C. screening of his new documentary, "An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power" (select theaters July 28; nationwide Aug. 4; from Paramount Pictures and Participant Media). #BeInconvenient

Being there, from Axios energy correspondent Amy Harder:

  • The film had a few jokes about how Gore didn't win the presidential election in 2000, and whether he plans to run again for the highest office. ("I'm a recovering politician," Gore says in the film, indicating but not expressly saying no.)
  • Before the film, someone in the audience shouted he should run for president in 2020, Gore replied: "I'll answer that in the movie."
