In an ' Email from Al and Tipper Gore,' the couple said: 'We are announcing today that after a great deal of thought and discussion, we have decided to separate'.I am not an Al Gore fan. I think Al Gore contributes more to global warming than he prevents. I don't think Al Gore should have won the Nobel Peace Prize. But Tipper Gore seems to me to be a decent person, and a good wife.
'This is very much a mutual and mutually supportive decision that we have made together following a process of long and careful consideration. We ask for respect for our privacy and that of our family, and we do not intend to comment further.'
The e-mail was obtained by POLITICO and confirmed by Kalee Kreider of the office of Al and Tipper Gore. Kreider said there would be no further comment.
I was under the impression that Al and Tipper Gore had an excellent marriage, and I'm sure many people thought likewise. I am saddened by the news that Al Gore and Tipper Gore are separating. Being married for 40 years is an accomplishment in this day and age when divorce is rampant. I wish Al and Tipper Gore the best of luck.
