Seeing how Gore is as much a Tennessean as I am a billionaire, I’ll vote for the only one running. Thompson.

Tennesseans had the opportunity to vote for Gore in 2000, and declined in large enough numbers to cost him the election.

Poll: Which Tennessean would you vote for: Thompson or Gore?

Since Gore didn't even carry the state against a guy from Texas, I'd say he wouldn't have a chance against a homestate boy.

As VICE (and gore has plenty if vice) President of the US, when he was running for POTUS in 2000... gored-head could not even win his home state. This poll is a waste of time... but I voted for Fred!

Didn’t algore grow up in a hotel in D.C.?
Besides I wouldn’t vote for algore for dog catcher much less president.
Whereas Fred Thompson seems a true Tennessee gentleman.

Fred Thompson may be an ok guy and if DH does not run, I may vote for him but... I didn’t like my first 3 choices the media offered. This man does himself no favor IMO , by letting them offer him, now, as a substitute. People wonder, what’s up with that.

Thompson would smoke Gore in Tennessee. Gore couldn’t win his own state when running against Bush.

Aw come on Troops. You got to admit Bonehead is a lot more interesting
than Fred. And AlGore invented the internet and is going to save the world
from SUV's. The Goron gets my vote (at least until the general election).

It would be fun to watch him cry and pout after losing again.

But the very thought of having to watch and hear him regularly on TV makes me pray that someone will spare me such great tribulation.

The man made my skin crawl.

Remember the Hulking Vulture over Opponent Debate Tactic?

I think he could be insane.

*From the Washington Post...
 
" ...For all of Gore's later fascination with science and technology, he often struggled academically in those subjects.  The political champion of the natural world received that sophomore D in Natural Sciences 6 (Man's Place in Nature) and then got a C-plus in Natural Sciences 118 his senior year.  The self-proclaimed inventor of the Internet avoided all courses in mathematics and logic throughout college, despite his outstanding score on the math portion of the SAT.   As was the case with many of his classmates, his high school math grades had dropped from A's to C's as he advanced from trigonometry to calculus in his senior year."

Great data on the Goreon.

Typical of a liberal BSer.

Take away their talking points and mantras, and they become lunatic idiots instead of just lunatics.

Technically speaking, neither is our man Fred (born in Alabama, and apparently his residency in currently in VA).

Gore has a carbon mcmansion in Tennesee and I know he has tenants that he abuses in Tennessee but I doubt any Tennesseans consider A. gore to be a tennessean.

I think Thompson has already knocked Algore out of the box even before either has even announced.

Algore won't take Thompson on in any way, shape or forum.

Gore is fat and flabby, Fred is lean and mean. It would be the Pillsbury Dough Boy versus Fredzilla.

Again another redneck with wrong information!
Al Gore was born in Washington, D.C., to Albert Arnold Gore, Sr., a U. S. Representative (1939–44, 1945–1953) and Senator (1953–1971) from Tennessee, and Pauline LaFon Gore, one of the first women to graduate from Vanderbilt University Law School. Al Gore Jr. thus divided his childhood between Washington, D.C., and Carthage, Tennessee: as a boy, during the school year, the family lived in a hotel in Washington and during summer vacations, Gore worked on the family farm in Carthage where hay and tobacco were grown and cattle were also raised.[4][5][6]
