While President Bush likes to project an image of strength and courage, the real truth is that in the presence of his large financial contributors, he is a moral coward.

Our democracy, our constitutional framework is really a kind of software for harnessing the creativity and political imagination for all of our people. The American democratic system was an early political version of Napster.
Al Gore

I have absolutely no plans and no expectations of ever being a candidate again.
Al Gore

As I have said for many years throughout this land, we’re borrowing money from China to buy oil from the Persian Gulf to burn it in ways that destroy the future of human civilization. Every bit of that has to change.

I drive a hybrid, and we’ve changed our light bulbs and windows and installed solar panels and geothermal ground source heat pumps and most everything else.
Al Gore

If the only tool we use to analyse what’s valuable is a price tag, then those things that don’t have price tags begin to look like they have no value.
Al Gore

Iraq’s search for weapons of mass destruction has proven impossible to deter and we should assume that it will continue for as long as Saddam is in power.
Al Gore

The heart of the security agenda is protecting lives – and we now know that the number of people who will die of AIDS in the first decade of the 21st Century will rival the number that died in all the wars in all the decades of the 20th century.

You know the old saying: you win some, you lose some… and then there’s that little-known third category.
Al Gore

We are going to have the best educated American people in the world.

I think it’s harder for people than it should be. But as more and more of us become carbon neutral and change the patterns in our lives to be part of the solution instead of part of the problem, we are now beginning to see the changes in policy that are needed.
Al Gore

America’s political system has evolved over the last 50 years in ways that have enhanced the power of business lobbies.
Al Gore

The Internet empowers individuals to play a more active role in the political process, as Obama’s campaign has manifested.
Al Gore

The signs that the world is spinning out of kilter are increasingly difficult to misinterpret. The question is how to convince enough people to join a critical mass of urgent opinion, in the U.S. and the rest of the world.
Al Gore

Al Gore

Hey, you know what, I’ve gotta go on that ‘Letterman’ show. That show is so lame.
Al Gore

I was in elective politics for 24 years. I’ve made four national races, two for President, two for Vice President. I have found there are other ways to serve, and I’m enjoying them.
Al Gore

I see myself in the mold of Rin Tin Tin. It didn’t go to his head either.
Al Gore
