Al Gore lives on a street in Nashville



“There are different kinds of intelligence, and itÂ’s arrogant for a person with one kind of intelligence to question someone with another kind. He [George W Bush] certainly is a master at some things, and he has a following. He seeks strength in simplicity. But, in todayÂ’s world, thatÂ’s often a problem. I donÂ’t think that heÂ’s weak intellectually. I think that he is incurious. ItÂ’s astonishing to me that heÂ’d spend an hour with his incoming Secretary of the Treasury and not ask him a single question. But I think his weakness is a moral weakness. I think he is a bully, and, like all bullies, heÂ’s a coward when confronted with a force that heÂ’s fearful of. His reaction to the extravagant and unbelievably selfish wish list of the wealthy interest groups that put him in the White House is obsequious. The degree of obsequiousness that is involved in saying ‘yes, yes, yes, yes, yesÂ’ to whatever these people want, no matter the damage and harm done to the nation as a whole - that can come only from genuine moral cowardice. I donÂ’t see any other explanation for it, because itÂ’s not a question of principle. The only common denominator is each of the groups has a lot of money that theyÂ’re willing to put in service to his political fortunes and their ferocious and unyielding pursuit of public policies that benefit them at the expense of the nation.” - Al Gore, about George W Bush, in a very interesting article about his current life
