Albert Gore Biography
Albert Gore (Albert Arnold Gore Jr. ) is an American politician and environmentalist who served as the 45th vice president of the United States from 1993 to 2001. Gore was Bill Clinton’s running mate in their successful campaign in 1992, and the pair was re-elected in 1996. Near the end of Clinton’s second term, Gore was selected as the Democratic nominee for the 2000 presidential election but lost the election in a very close race after a Florida recount. After his term as vice-president ended in 2001, Gore remained prominent as an author and environmental activist, whose work in climate change activism earned him (jointly with the IPCC) the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007.
Gore was an elected official for 24 years. He was a representative from Tennessee (1977–1985) and from 1985 to 1993 served as one of the state’s senators. He served as vice president during the Clinton administration from 1993 to 2001. The 2000 presidential election was one of the closest presidential races in history. Gore won the popular vote, but after a controversial election dispute over a Florida recount (settled by the U.S. Supreme Court, which ruled 5–4 in favor of Bush), he lost the election to Republican opponent George W. Bush in the Electoral College.

Albert Gore Vice Presidency
Al Gore served as Vice President during the Clinton Administration. Clinton and Gore were inaugurated on January 20, 1993. At the beginning of the first term, they developed a “two-page agreement outlining their relationship”. Clinton committed himself to regular lunch meetings; he recognized Gore as a principal adviser on nominations and appointed some of Gore’s chief advisers to key White House staff positions.
Clinton involved Gore in decision-making to an unprecedented degree for a Vice President. Through their weekly lunches and daily conversations, Gore became the president’s “indisputable chief adviser”.
However, Gore had to compete with First Lady Hillary for President Clinton’s influence, starting when she was appointed to the health-care task force without Gore’s consultation. Vanity Fair wrote that President Clinton’s “failure to confide in his vice president was a telling sign of the real pecking order”, and reported, “it was an open secret that some of Hillary’s advisers…nurtured dreams that Hillary, not Gore, would follow Bill in the presidency”.
Gore had a particular interest in reducing “waste, fraud, and abuse in the federal government and advocated trimming the size of the bureaucracy and the number of regulations.” During the Clinton Administration, the U.S. economy expanded, according to David Greenberg (professor of history and media studies at Rutgers University) who said that “by the end of the Clinton presidency, the numbers were uniformly impressive.
Besides the record-high surpluses and the record-low poverty rates, the economy could boost the longest economic expansion in history; the lowest unemployment since the early 1970s; and the lowest poverty rates for single mothers, black Americans, and the aged.”
