    <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...

    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...

    WASHINGTON -- Once upon a time, there was a narrowly defeated presidential nominee who, after licking his wounds over a long period, sat down and examined why he had lost. This former vice president decided he had done it wrong the first time around and vowed if he ran for president again he would profit from his mistakes. He would campaign in a different way, avoiding the errors that had denied him the White House. So says Al Gore now as he masquerades his active re-entry into presidential politics as a book tour. And in so saying, he is merely...

She said The tree and Tipper are sitting there and there are only a couple people there to buy books. Bwahahahahah. I thought this was a "best seller." They have another signing tonight at Elliott Bay Books in Seattle. That should draw a little better among Seattle's Lefties.

    EATONVILLE, Fla. - Former Vice President Al Gore on Sunday urged black voters "to walk through fire" to cast their ballots, testifying to his experience during the Florida recount of 2000. "If anybody ever tells you that one vote doesn't make a difference, ask them to come talk to me," said Gore, who two years ago lost the presidential election to George W. Bush in part because of the electoral debacle in Florida. That line, repeated at three Orlando-area black churches, was met every time with applause and cries of approval. Democrats have long regarded black voters as a crucial...

    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...

    <p>October 12, 2002 -- If voters got a second chance to pick between George W. Bush and Al Gore, it would be a Bush blowout by 59 to 34 percent, according to a new nationwide Marist College poll.</p> <p>There could well be a Bush-Gore rematch, because Gore remains the top 2004 presidential pick among Democrats. Meanwhile, Gore's spokesman yesterday said Gore would have voted against the Iraq resolution, putting him at odds with all potential Democratic presidential candidates in the House and Senate.</p>
