    <p>RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Al Gore said Monday he's "at peace" with his decision to forgo what could be his last shot at the White House, mostly because a rematch with President Bush in 2004 would force him to revisit the ordeal of their last go-round.</p>

    Former vice-president Al Gore recently made a visit to China, where he is believed to have been paid to speak at a communist government-linked think-tank and attended a lunch hosted by former ENRON director Ronnie Chan Chi-chung. MORE Participants at the China Development Institute-sponsored forum in Shenzhen, at which Gore was a key speaker last month, were offered the chance to have their photo taken with Gore if they paid 50,000 yuan (HK$ 47,000) or 100,000 yuan for conference sponsorship packages, the SOUTH CHINA MORNING POST reported.

    Is Al Gore destined to be the Adlai Stevenson of our age? Stevenson, who also came from a political family (his grandfather was Grover Cleveland's vice president), won the Democratic presidential nomination in 1952 and 1956 and both times was defeated by Dwight Eisenhower. Stevenson was considered an intellectual - an egghead in the jargon of the day - witty and erudite. Ike, on the other hand, was a clumsy speaker, a syntax mangler who supposedly thought no great thoughts. He won both times in a walk. If my reference to Eisenhower brings President Bush to mind, it is supposed...

    WASHINGTON - U.S. Rep. Barney Frank, voicing strong support for U.S. Sen. John Kerry's presidential ambitions, yesterday urged former Vice President Al Gore to stay out of the 2004 White House race."Gore would lose," Frank said. "I don't think he should run ... His negatives are too high."As Kerry officially created his presidential exploratory committee, Frank, D-Newton, said Gore lacks the political popularity to topple President Bush - who is riding a wave of favorability as he pursues the war on terrorism.Frank stressed he wasn't blaming Gore, but simply recognizing a political reality Democrats must confront."Gore was the leading opponent...

    Tipper Gore, who is an amateur genealogical researcher, discovered that her husband's great-great uncle, Chadsworth Gore, a fellow greatly lacking in characer, was hanged for horse stealing and train robbery in Tennessee in 1889. The only known photograph of Chadsworth Gore shows him standing on the gallows. On the back of the picture is this inscription: ''Chadsworth Gore--horse thief, sent to Tennessee State Prison in 1885, escaped 1887, robbed the Tennessee Flyer six times. Caught by Pinkerton detectives, convicted and hanged in 1889.'' After letting Al Gore and his staff of professional image consultants peruse the findings, his staff decided...

    Former vice president Al Gore yesterday urged Maryland Democrats to remember the outrage they felt over the results of the 2000 presidential election and channel it to bring voters to the polls in the tight gubernatorial race. Appearing with Lt. Gov. Kathleen Kennedy Townsend at a boisterous rally at Bowie State University, Gore asked people whether they recalled where they were when the U.S. Supreme Court decided to discontinue counting ballots from the disputed Florida vote two years ago. Dozens of hands shot up. "Are you over it?" Gore asked, to which the crowd shouted that it was not. "Use...

    Ex-vice president gets college crowd behind him during Valley visit. BETHLEHEM TWP. PA-- Republicans have completely mismanaged the American economy since George W. Bush became president almost two years ago, former Vice President Al Gore charged during a stump speech Thursday at Northampton Community College. "If you compare what's happened today to what was happening during the Clinton-Gore years, the turnaround has been so dramatic and taken us so far down, there has not been such catastrophic mismanagement of America's economy since the presidency of Herbert Hoover," Gore said during a half-hour speech. Hoover was president when the Great Depression...

Gore called for a short-term stimulus program that would include extended unemployment benefits and help for small businesses "to jolt the U.S. economy out of stagnation." He warned against waiting until Congress returns next year to consider economic steps because "in the interim,...

    NASHVILLE - Al Gore is making a splash on the national scene with his criticism of President Bush's move toward war in Iraq. The former vice president also has been a welcome Democratic fund-raiser in 2002 elections around the nation, but back home in Tennessee, he's not much of a factor in key races for the U.S. Senate and governor - except as an example of what not to do. Some think he could be hurting his chances should he decide to run for president again. "It's still shocking to people how a guy whose father represented the state and...

    PORTSMOUTH - With the drama of last week’s midterm primary barely past, the stage is already being set for 2004. Apparently, Al Gore is interested in reprising his role. Sunday night reports began circulating that Gore has confided to his top aides that he will take another shot at the presidency. Almost immediately, people in the Gore camp denied the reports. With scheduled stops in Iowa, New Hampshire and the focal point of the 2000 election, Florida, it’s hard not to see Gore is preparing another presidential bid. The Portsmouth Democratic headquarters is still strewn with the mementos of Gore’s...
