    Former Vice President Al Gore says the Bush White House is using the Sept. 11 terror attacks to justify a major offensive against the freedoms and liberties Americans have enjoyed for centuries. "They have taken us much farther down the road toward an intrusive, 'big brother'-style government – toward the dangers prophesied by George Orwell in his book '1984' – than anyone ever thought would be possible in the United States of America," Gore charged in a speech. Gore, who lost the disputed 2000 presidential election to President Bush, brought many in the crowd of 3,000 to their feet Sunday...
  • Gore Defends the Dixie Chicks

    (3/31/03, 7 a.m. ET) -- The Dixie Chicks controversy continues with the trio getting some support from former Vice President Al Gore. Gore spoke to a college audience last week on the subject of fewer companies owning more media outlets, and what he sees as the increasing lack of tolerance for opposing views. According to the Tennessean, Gore used recent attacks on the Dixie Chicks that followed anti-war comments by Natalie Maines as an example. Gore told the audience, "They were made to feel un-American and risked economic retaliation because of what was said. Our democracy has taken a hit,"...

    Tuesday Feb. 25, 2003; 7:22 p.m. EST Clinton Had the Hots for War Critic Crow Yesterday revealed that anti-war songbird Sheryl Crow put her pacifism aside when it came to Bill Clinton's military deployment in Bosnia, which Crow so enthusiastically backed that she accompanied Hillary Clinton to the Balkan hot spot to entertain the troops. Now comes word that Crow's patriotic fervor was very much appreciated at the Clinton White House - in more ways than one. Late Tuesday WABC Radio's Richard Bey recounted a story told by his old college buddy, who went on to become vice president...
  • Flim-flam man returns: Hugh Hewitt on the Clinton fly in Bush ointment

    The Atlantic Monthly shocks readers with its cover this month: A sculpted Bill Clinton with the headline "Post-President for Life." Two lengthy articles follow: a far too deferential account of what he's been up to and what he might try to accomplish by James Fallows, and a devastatingly accurate assessment of the vulgar appeal and carnival-like progress of the man George Will aptly branded the "worst man ever to be president," by P.J. O'Rourke. Clinton is of course again running for the White House, and Fallows' refusal to analyze his every move in light of Hillary's expected run in 2008...
  • Clinton's Axis of Evil: Limbaugh, O'Reilly, Hannity

    It looks like ex-President Bill Clinton has his own Axis of Evil, although the threats he warned about yesterday have nothing to do with terrorism. "(The Republicans) have a much better media machine than we do," Clinton insisted to "Today" show host Katie Couric, before naming, "Rush Limbaugh, Bill O'Reilly and Sean Hannity," who he said "are very outspoken, and are on the right wing of the Republican Party." Other cogs in the GOP's "media machine," according to the ex-president, include the Heritage Foundation and "sympathetic newspapers and sympathetic cable programs that are heavily weighted in their favor." "There...

    The United States should be more diplomatic than it has been in handling its current confrontations with Iraq and North Korea, former President Clinton said Wednesday in an appearance at the University of Texas. In an hour-long speech at the Erwin Center, Clinton addressed a possible war with Iraq, international diplomacy and President Bush's proposed tax cuts. But he said the country's largest threat today is the potential for a revived nuclear weapons program in North Korea. The remarks came on the same day that CIA director George Tenet revealed that North Korea has a long range missile capable of...

    Mikhail Gorbachev is teaming up with former US president Bill Clinton and actress Sophia Loren to record a new version of the classic children's musical "Peter and the Wolf." Retitled "The Wolf and Peter", the remake of Sergei Prokoviev's tale will tell the story from the point of view of the wolf, faced with the encroachments of urbanisation on his dwindling forest habitat.

    ALEIGH, N.C., Dec. 16 — Al Gore told a story today that he had told many times, but he gave it a new ending.He recalled that in 1970, after his father lost a bitter Senate race in Tennessee, they paddled a canoe on the Caney Fork River near their home and mulled whether Albert Gore Sr. should stay in politics.As Mr. Gore recounted: "He said, `You serve 32 years in the Senate and the House and this happens and what do you do?' And my advice to him was, `I'd take the 32 years, Dad.' " Then came the...

    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.

    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 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?...
