  • Primary School - Field organization (Albert Gore's team sabotaged 2000 New Hampshire primary)

    • Field organization. Vice-President Al Gore may have won the 2000 New Hampshire primary — and subsequent primaries, which fed on the New Hampshire–generated momentum — thanks to a traffic jam. At least that’s what many Democratic operatives with experience in New Hampshire seem to think. Today, when people look back at the 2000 Democratic-primary season, the prevailing memory is of Gore trouncing former New Jersey senator Bill Bradley. But he beat Bradley in New Hampshire by just four points, a relatively narrow margin of 6395 votes. The bulk of these votes — more than 3000 — came from Hillsborough...

    The New York Sun ^ | 02/07/03 | editorial board
    The Boston Phoenix out yesterday carries a dispatch by Seth Gitell that includes the following anecdote about the 2000 Democratic primary in New Hampshire. “Gore operatives had access to exit polls showing the vice president being defeated by Bradley. They also learned that while Democratic voters were voting in large numbers for Gore, independents, many of them upscale suburban voters, were voting for Bradley’s sophisticated brand of liberalism.” This they knew by early afternoon. Their solution? “The Gore team organized a caravan to clog highway I-93 with traffic so as to discourage potential Bradley voters from getting to the polls.”...

    Now that Algore has dropped out of the presidential race, many of you might be concerned as to what Mr. Gore will be doing for a living. It turns out that the real reason why Algore has dropped out of the race is so that he could devote full time to his real passion---writing movie reviews. We can now expect weekly movie reviews from Mr. Gore for at least the next couple of years. To see some of Mr. Gore's movie reviews from the last couple of years, please check out the BULLDOG BULLETIN ARCHIVES. There is a movie review...

    NEW YORK, Dec 15, 2002 (AP Online via COMTEX) -- Al and Tipper Gore may have logged TV's longest screen embrace during their opening bit on "Saturday Night Live." Reunited in an NBC corridor after a few painful moments apart, the Gore lovebirds went into a clench while cast member Jimmy Fallon and executive producer Lorne Michaels looked on uneasily. "Maybe we should get them to stop," Fallon said, moments before someone zapped the former vice president with a stun gun. Total smooch time: 2 1-2 minutes. Gore included the "Saturday Night Live" host gig in his monthlong television...

    WASHINGTON - Just as Vice President Gore is reappearing on the American political scene, a recent trip to Asia is prompting questions about a fund-raising flap like the ones that followed him after the 1996 Clinton-Gore campaign. Mr. Gore visited Hong Kong and Shenzhen, China, last month for a forum focused on the nation’s entry into the World Trade Organization. Conference participants had the opportunity to have their photos taken with Mr. Gore in exchange for cash, the South China Morning Post reported. The sponsor of the event at the top of the list on the forum Web site, the...
  • Al Gore's awful media gaffes

    Al Gore has promised if he runs again for the presidency, he's not going to hold back his opinions. He's going to "let 'er rip." If what he's been saying recently is any indication of the reinvented Gore, the campaign should be loads of fun to watch. Exhibit A: In an interview with The New York Observer, the man who would be leader of the free world declared the political press includes "major institutional voices that are, truthfully speaking, part and parcel of the Republican Party." He cited Fox News, The Washington Times and Rush Limbaugh, sneering that some...

    Gore’s TV War: He Lobs Salvo At Fox News by Josh Benson Among the many problems facing the Democratic Party, according to former Vice President Al Gore, is the state of the American media. "The media is kind of weird these days on politics, and there are some major institutional voices that are, truthfully speaking, part and parcel of the Republican Party," said Mr. Gore in an interview with The Observer. "Fox News Network, The Washington Times, Rush Limbaugh—there’s a bunch of them, and some of them are financed by wealthy ultra-conservative billionaires who make political deals with Republican administrations...

    COUNTING EVERY READER Al Gore is said by associates to be surprised that his newest books on family aren't selling well. The pair of books co-written with wife Tipper Gore (one of them is a coffee-table book intended to serve as companion to the "heavier" tome) are apparently headed toward the remainder bin as bookstores move more popular and potential Christmas gift fare into the line of sight of customers. "We aren't selling any," says a sales associate for Borders Books in Bethesda, Maryland. "And we thought given that this is kind of a political book and that it's by...

    The former leader needs more than a makeover, says Orla Healy ITCHING for a rematch with George Bush in the 2004 presidential race, Al Gore last week reemerged from his Garbo-esque exile kicking off a 25-day, 12-city book tour to promote Joined at the Heart, which he wrote with his wife, Tipper. "The Gore book tour is like the trailer for a movie," says his former press secretary Chris Lehane. "It is interesting and entertaining but could also be a preview of what is to come. In the parlance of marketing and branding, it is a soft launch." Soft launch?...

    Former Vice President Al Gore, as he nears a decision on whether to seek the presidency again, has begun formulating plans for a possible campaign that would be much more informal in style and more ambitious in its ideas than his unsuccessful race in 2000. he would "do it in a very different way" by devoting most of his time to small meetings and "relaxed conversations" with individuals and families. And he said he would offer bolder ideas, like his recent endorsement of a single-payer system that would fundamentally restructure health care in America.Indeed, it appears that if Gore runs,...

    The Republicans may have control of Congress, but Al Gore has control of the future. The former Democratic vice president has a guest role on Sunday's season premiere of Fox's animated sci-fi comedy "Futurama," supplying the voice of his own disembodied, scientifically preserved head. (ROFLOL !) "I think I may have a future as a disembodied head," Gore joked in an interview with The Associated Press on Friday. "I'm not sure that any political calculation would have steered me toward this part, but it was great fun doing it." "Futurama" chronicles the 30th-century life of a hapless time-traveler named Fry,...

    DAYTONA BEACH -- Former Vice President Al Gore stepped to the podium at Bethune-Cookman College on Sunday looking to supercharge fellow Democrat Bill McBride's campaign for governor. But another election, the closest and most contested in Florida and the nation's history, remained on the minds of many in the crowd of 250. Gore still gets their vote almost two years later. Under an old oak tree, supporters held signs that read: "Welcome President Gore!" and chanted: "Gore in Four." Sans his college-professor beard and most of his post-election girth, Gore tried to diffuse the lingering anger and despair. "I'm Al...

    Former Vice President Al Gore called on Thursday for a broad public health act to mobilize defenses against a possible biological attack, saying the existing threat will grow with a U.S. invasion of Iraq. In the latest in a string of policy speeches as he ponders another White House run in 2004, Gore cited intelligence estimates that the threat of a bioterror attack from Iraq would jump to "pretty high" after a U.S. strike on Baghdad. "We need a national defense public health act to respond to the immediate threat in the wake of an attack against Iraq," Gore said...
