Can a leopard change its spots?

According to former US Vice President Al Gore there is now a groundwell of support amongst Republicans for policies to tackle CO2 emissions. Although Gore acknowledged that the critical mass had yet to be reached, he predicted that Bush would soon shift his position on climate change in response to pressure from business leaders, city mayors and right-wing Christian leaders.

"Many of his strongest supporters are changing their positions and are becoming vocal in asking him to change" Gore said, adding "There is a burden of implausibility that the President is now carrying with his position."
