Apple today announced the latest addition to its Board of Directors -- former Vice President of the United States, Al Gore. The company noted that Gore was elected in a meeting of the board today.

Apple CEO Steve Jobs called his company "excited and honored" to have been chosen by Gore; Apple's Board of Directors is the first private sector board Gore has chosen to serve on, according to Jobs.

"Al brings an incredible wealth of knowledge and wisdom to Apple from having helped run the largest organization in the world -- the United States government -- as a Congressman, Senator and our 45th Vice President. Al is also an avid Mac user and does his own video editing in Final Cut Pro," said Jobs.

Every iPod and itune is money in Al Gore's pocket for his 2008 campain with Hillary.

His salary and stock options will help nicely.

Good. If that's the case, buy an iPod. We want him to win the nomination.

Am I the only one who has a problem with that sentence?

The user added subtitle seems I little over the top. After all Hillary was on the Walmart Board of Directors for a period.

Well if there ever was any doubt about the politics of Apple
leadership it is finished now. Personally, I ruled out Apple
when they threw all owners of Apple IIs under the train by abandoning support for the product. Maybe they will do that to Gore.

Why are you putting a 3-year-old article in the NEWS section?

This is like designating Mr. Magoo head of flight control at LAX.

Jobs has let liberal PC bore termite holes in his brain.

I would fear for my Apple stock if I owned any.

Dont believe in financial rewards for imbicile ning-compoops like Algore.

Too bad. I was this close = to buying an iPod or a Mac.

But my conscious will not allow me to further anyone (if I can at all help it) who is not only nuckin futz, but is harming this great country of America.

Guess I'll stick with my current system. (suppose I should thank someone for saving me the $$ I would have frittered away)

Gore is by all accounts -- and this isn't just from Apple now by more from Google -- a billionaire. He can self fund a run.

OK.

Good point.

Just pointing out we have the ability to control where our money goes.

I refuse to fund Liberals, their supporters, their agenda and their campaigns.

Buyer beware.

It's your decision what you choose to buy.

A good question. Wonder if we'll get an answer.

A) Maybe the poster wanted to remind us about the relationship between Al Gore and Apple.
2) What difference does it make? It's correctly dated.
