Tim Cook already has plenty of fans, but just in case you were wondering, we can add former U.S. Vice President Al Gore to the list as well. Speaking with Bloomberg, the almost-43rd-President of the United States called Apple’s head honcho “A fantastic CEO.” This should come as little surprise, given that Gore is indeed seated on Apple’s board of directors, but it’s a nice pat on the back in the midst of the utterly absurd “the sky is falling on Apple” mania.

“Can you imagine trying to follow Steve Jobs?” Gore continued. “Well, Tim’s done it, and he’s done it in his own unique way. Next week there’s yet another announcement from Apple. I invite people to tune in for that. They’re really hitting on all cylinders.”

Gore, of course, was referring to the October 22nd event in which it is expected that Apple will reveal the next devices in the iPad line… and maybe even something you aren’t expecting.
