Al And Tipper Gore Separating

Tue Jun 01, 2010 5:31 pm

And here I thought they had one of the best and most genuine marriages in politics. Goes to show not all is as it seems.

Bill and Hillary are STILL going strong despite what the haters, naysayers, and moralizers had to say. I love it!
Live life to the fullest.

Perhaps she got tired of Manbearpig?

Sure, we're concerned for our lives. Just not as concerned as saving 9 bucks on a roundtrip to Ft. Myers.

Bill and Hillary hunger for political power far more than they hunger for each other, and they're willing to put up a facade in order to obtain and retain whatever political power they get. IMO, they have a marriage of convenience. Al and Tipper Gore probably had more of what a marriage is really all about, which means they endured the trials and tribulations of a real marriage far more than Bill and Hillary ever did. But I suppose staying in a sham marriage in order to protect an image and to prove the naysayers and moralizers wrong can be considered "working hard at keeping a marriage alive". For whatever that is worth.

They probably did, but even so people DO get tired of each other...particularly if they grow apart, which is something that may have occurred here ...a long time ago.

True, but yet no different from the majority of political married couples...most stay together for the 'sake of appearances'...the affection for another has long left the scene. Yet many hang together because they are more worried about 'what people will think' - like most people (...which I personally think is rather cowardly).

it's getting serious - Tipper's divorce lawyer today said she would be asking for 1/2 of the internet as part of the divorce settlement.

Anyone here the MSNBC commentator blaming the 2000 election for the divorce ! They actually said that it devastated the marriage .... these people are having acid flashbacks in the major way .

Sadly I wish no good for the man .... his speech in Dubai while 3rd marine were in hell is a terrible karma boomerang. He deserves misery ... and humiliation.


Hey Cheer up Al ! .... you will be ok ..your still young and attractive like us .... .
You dig the hole .. I fill the hole . 100% employment !

Kilroy and Jonathan Chance better look out.

Anyone want to guess what I am referring to?

Look, I'm no fan of Al Gore but I could definitely see how the whole 2000 election mess could seriously screw up a marriage. Hell, to have worked all your life for that one moment and to see it get screwed up the way it did - it's got to be devastating.

Let's be honest, I firmly believe that G.W.B. won the elections because he had the most # of votes cast in Florida. However, I also know that because of the confusion over the butterfly ballot the majority of people who voted for Buchanan did not intend to do so - thereby costing Al Gore the presidency. That's got to sting. Remember Tipper already had a well documented bout with depression.

Exactly. It is entirely within the realm of possibility that the 2000 election could very well have strained their marriage. The entire fiasco would have affected anyone in Gore's place.

Good one!

I really didn't see this coming. Even at 61, Tipper's still quite attractive. (Be nice you guys!)

In the Yahoo article it stated that their son, Albert III, got pulled over for doing 100 mph in a Prius. I didn't think a Prius could go that fast!

Anyway, I'm not a Gore fan, but I wish them well.
