(CNN) – Former Vice President Al Gore is offering up his own explanation for President Obama’s debate performance last night — it was the altitude.

Gore, a former presidential candidate himself, participated in a post-debate discussion on his Current T-V channel last night.

He told the other panelists that President Obama only arrived in the Mile High City the day of the debate — whereas Mitt Romney had been in Denver since Monday.

According to Gore, the president only had a “few hours to adjust” to the city’s altitude, which stretches a mile above sea level.

A C-N-N poll of those who watched the debate found Romney’s showing to be stronger than Obama’s.
