I think Al Gore is a great man and the mistakes he’s made in his life do not compare to the good he has done.

I’m not sure I’d call him a “great” man, but I agree that he has done some good. In his bringing environmental problems to greater prominence, and also some of the stuff he did as VP (such as trying to improve the efficiency of government agencies/departments.) In his legislative efforts there were some things I frowned upon - remember it was he (carrying out Tipper’s wishes if not his own) who was a leading “conservative” voice against the media, etc.

Yet again, I hope that Gore fades into the sunset and enjoys whatever is left of his life, without the hassle the hate-o-sphere wants to dish out.
