Former Virginia Governor Mark Warner made a stop Wednesday at the University of Virginia.
Warner took time to speak to one of professor Larry Sabato's classes. Warner touched on various topics including the war in Iraq, saying that Republicans and Democrats must find a way out of the war.
"I know he's got a decision he's going to make, I believe in the next few months, but I don't have a time table for my decision about what if anything I do in terms of elective office," said Warner. "There's no reason to rule anything out at this point as a citizen of the Commonwealth, there's no need to rule anything out or anything in."
The former governor also talked about his new interest in alternative energy and ways the United States can develop alternative fuel sources to decrease dependency on foreign oil sources.
But the former governor deflected questions about whether he would run for political office if current Republican Virginia Senator John Warner does not seek another term.
Warner also would not comment on who he may endorse for president in 2008, or if he would consider joining a ticket as the vice-presidential candidate.
