Albert Arnold Gore, Jr., (born March 31, 1948) is an American politician, teacher, businessman, and environmentalist who served as the 45th Vice President of the United States in the Clinton administration from 1993 to 2001. Previously, he had served as a Representative and Senator from Tennessee.

Gore was the Democratic nominee for president in the 2000 Presidential election. Gore won a plurality of the popular vote, with over half a million more votes than the Republican candidate George W. Bush, but was defeated in the Electoral College by a vote of 271 to 266.

Gore currently is president of the American television channel Current, chairman of Generation Investment Management, a director on the board of Apple Computer, and an unofficial adviser to Google's senior management. He lectures widely on the topic of global warming, which he calls "the climate crisis". Gore appeared on the MTV Video Music Awards on August 31, 2006 speaking about global warming.

Although speculation about a possible Presidential run in 2008 continues, he has been quoted as recently as June 4, 2006, as saying, "I have no plans to run for President again,"but hasn’t ruled out a future in politics.

Gore's popularity has seen a dramatic increase among grassroots Democrats, with Gore getting 68% of support among potential 2008 Democratic presidential candidates on a May 2006 DailyKos poll, and on July 13, 2006, an AlterNet poll had 35% of respondents selecting Gore as their preferred Democratic candidate in 2008. In addition, a Gallup poll released in August 2006 showed that nearly half of Americans view Gore favorably (48 percent to 45 percent). (Credit: Wikipedia)
