Gore kisses and sells on 'SNL'

12/15/2002

By PAUL LIEBERMAN / Los Angeles Times

Excerpt:

NEW YORK – Poking fun at his reputation for stiffness, not to mention his narrow loss of the presidency, former Vice President Al Gore completed a string of appearances on comedy shows Saturday by hosting Saturday Night Live, which for years won laughs at his expense.

Mr. Gore made light of his lingering public kiss with his wife, Tipper, during the 2000 Democratic convention, compared the process of picking a running mate to the reality TV show The Bachelor – bonding with Sen. Joe Lieberman, D-Conn., over a glass of champagne in a hot tub – and got to play president with the cast of The West Wing, enviously trying out Martin Sheen's oval office chair.

"The good news about not being president is that I have my weekends free," Mr. Gore declared in his opening monologue. "The bad news is that my weekdays are also free."


Former Vice President Al Gore portrays an apologetic Sen. Trent Lott, R-Miss., in a skit on Saturday Night Live.
