One has to wonder, what would the world by like if he had won the presidency?
I pondered this as I was laying down to sleep last night, after viewing these two videos which I came across in a thread on Fark. I think the world would be a very, very, very different place had Gore won the presidency in 2000.
An incredibly revealing set of videos made by Spike Jonze (of Adaptation and Being John Malkovich fame) shows a very personable, humorous, incredibly intelligent, and passionate Al Gore. His vision is not just about global warming and the environment (although he does bring it up in the video). He has a genuine conviction to making America a better place for the lower and middle class in America through education, fostering our competitive advantages in industry, and ensuring that American's are ready for the coming (this was shot in 1999) information age.
I think that seeing his interaction with his family and especially his daughters in these videos actually reveals a great deal about him and the values he brings to the table as compared to Bush, who also happens to have two daughters.
And if there was any doubt that the election was stolen: "How Bush Defeated Gore--The Real Story"...watch how Clayton Roberts, director of the Florida Division of Elections, squirms.
