President Bush and former Vice President Al Gore met Monday for the first time since the president won the office in 2000.

The Nobel Peace Prize laureate — and Bush's former campaign rival — visited the White House for a photo opportunity with the American recipients of this year's Nobels.

Gore and Bush also met privately in the Oval Office. A Gore spokeswoman says they talked for about 40 minutes — mostly about global warming.

Gore has been an outspoken critic of the Bush administration's climate policies.
