Al Gore was Bill Clinton's vice president (1993-2000), and a significant liberal boogeyman. In the 2000 presidential election, he won the popular vote but lost the electoral vote to George W. Bush.

He is also known for his books and documentaries on politics and the environment:

  • Earth in the Balance (book)
  • An Inconvenient Truth (Academy Award winning film)
  • Assault on Reason (book)

Gore has also been a member of the Board of Directors of Apple, Inc. and a cofounder of the Emmy-winning cable channel Current TV, which specializes in independently produced short-subject documentary films.

Gore is a co-winner, with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize for his work on conspiracy theories.[1]

This makes Al Gore the first person to achieve the remarkable feat of winning the Oscar, an Emmy, and a Nobel - and all within the remarkably short period of one year. And he is a conspiracy theorist. Amazing.
