Bill and Hillary Clinton looked down on Al Gore, but Gore made more money and isn’t under investigation by the FBI. Al Gore was Bill Clinton’s vice president from 1992 to 2000. The Clintons thought he was a bit thick, a bit nerdy, and more than a little boring — and were happy to see him busy himself with science stuff.
The Clinton’s recent pay-for-play corruption at the State Department, their extravagantly expensive speeches, and those the donations to the Clinton Foundation only earned the Clintons a few hundred million dollars. But Al Gore, after finishing 2000 with less than two million to his name, was a billionaire by about 2007 — from his movie, carbon deals, the carbon emission permits exchange, Apple directorship, and so on. So point 1 to Gore.
Gore’s fortune, shrunken somewhat as the carbon theory of global warming has floundered, was gained honestly, even if based on a mistake. However the Clinton’s modus operandi has landed them in hot water with the FBI, with years of investigation and evasions ahead. Point 2 to Gore.
For the third and final point, who is going to lose a presidential election by more — Hillary or Gore?
Al Gore receiving the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007. No way Bill and Hillary are going to get one of those.
