NEW YORK - Kristin Gore, daughter of former Vice President Al Gore, is writing a novel.

"Sammy's Hill," the story of a health care analyst working for an Ohio senator, is tentatively scheduled to come out in 2005.

Financial terms were not disclosed.

Gore, who will be published by Miramax Books, has a background in both show business and politics. She gave speeches during her father's 2000 presidential campaign and wrote for the animated Fox television series "Futurama."

At least one child of a famous politician has become a successful author. Margaret Truman, daughter of President Truman, wrote a series of popular thrillers, including "Murder at the White House" and "Murder in Georgetown

From "Futurama" to "the story of a health care analyst working for an Ohio senator".

Sad.

Is she going to write a story about a young, underage daughter of a fictitious Senator from Tennessee who is arrested for public intoxication outside a high school party in a wealthy Washington suburb?

Kristin Gore, daughter of former Vice President Al Gore, is writing a novel.

If it is as entertaining/enlightening as the average episode of Futurama, it will not have siblings.

If she wants to sell books, I'd suggest the following change:

Perhaps this imbecile will also hire one of Hillary's "ghost writers" to give her a hand.

Everything about the cancellation of "Futurama" is sad, Gorons included.

Why hasn't she "enlisted" into the armed forces to be a good "patriot"?

While Bender is the best character. I love Zoidberg.

Wrong.

These novels were all ghost-written. I read an article on this recently, but unfortunately can't seem to put my hands on it.

Fortunately, she won't be writing it from Dick Cheney's house. :)

I thought her sister Karinna Gore Shiftless did the Futurama deal.

I'm waiting for Chelsea Clinton's book. It will be a cross between Mommie Dearest and Mafia Princess.

What riveting subject matter. Should sell thousands of copies in GeorgeTown and greater DC to young, self absorbed, congressional staffers and policy wonks.
