Is This A Clean Split For The Gores?

The Gores shocking announcement of a marital split came as no surprise to me. Not that I have any inside scoop about the couple’s private life, but, given this economic recession, marriages seem to be falling apart faster than a plummeting stock.

After 40 years of marriage, two terms as Vice President, a Democratic presidential nomination that failed to George W. Bush, an Oscar for his documentary An Inconvenient Truth, a Grammy for Best Spoken Word Album and a Nobel Peace Prize, Al Gore has probably decided that he has racked up a sizable amount of accomplishments—enough to kick old Tipper to the curb. What’s next for Al Gore; a Tony, an Emmy, or a star on Hollywood Walk of Fame? Perhaps, given his expertise on global warming, the Environmental Protection Agency should solicit his advice on how to control the oil spill in the Gulf, instead of seeking filmmaker, James Cameron’s advice.

According to the Associated Press, the Gores’ split was mutual with no indications of extra marital affairs. Incidentally, that [in itself] is “An Inconvenient Truth,” considering, extra marital affairs seem to be status quo among politicians. It would not surprise me one bit if Al is spotted with a hot blonde in the next couple of weeks.

As for Tipper, she might just do a remix of Beyonce’s R&B hit, Single Ladies, “If you like it then you gotta put a ring,” as she celebrates her split from her overachieving husband.
