Do you have any references to this?
My husband went to college (Univ. of the South, Sewanee, TN) with AlBore’s cousin. The cousin said Al was nothing but a sniveling, lying brat. He couldn’t even carry his “home” state...if he had, he would have gotten the electorial votes he needed to win.
I was watching E! or some other show a few years ago, and the pretty interviewer was flirting with Tommy Lee Jones, remarking that he graduated cum laude from Harvard and was varsity letter football player on the team's undefeated season. Then she brought up Al Gore (his roommate) and asked if they studied together.
Jones said something like "No ma'am - studying for Al meant watching Star Trek and eating cheeseburgers."
