Not the Gores?!
Ok, you're not going to believe this, but Al and Tipper Gore are cool. At least that's how I've observed them (at meetings, dinners, events) over the last 10 years. Al is not nearly as stiff as his reputation portrays him. His wit is as dry as the best martini. Tipper is that down-to-earth, fun-loving person you want to glide through a party with. She's sassy and loud, with an infectious laugh.
That's why it shocked me when my TweetDeck chirped the following tweet from Politico's Patrick Gavin: POLITICO: Al Gore and Tipper Gore splitting... The Gores were that couple you could never imagine splitting, especially after that impassioned kiss at the 2000 Democratic Convention when Al accepted the nomination for president. But after 40 years of marriage they announced their separation today.
We are announcing today that after a great deal of thought and discussion, we have decided to separate.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.
I wish them both well. And hope they find happiness soon. Cool people almost always do.
