Gore Isn’t Telling
Posted on Feb 6, 2008
Al Gore voted in Tennessee’s primary, but he’s not saying for whom. According to a spokeswoman, “As private citizens, neither of the Gores are releasing who they voted for.” There’s been much speculation over whether Bill Clinton’s former vice president, in light of his known animus toward Hillary, would endorse a candidate, but we suspect that Gore enjoys life above the fray a bit too much to bother. Were he still doing battle in the political arena, he well might have been his party’s nominee.
“Al Gore hasn’t made an endorsement, but he has made his choice,” Ben Smith notes.
Gore’s ballot “was one of the 631,680 counted yesterday in Tennessee, where Clinton won the state by a 54% to 40% margin.”
Said a spokeswoman: “He early voted. As a private citizens, neither of the Gores are releasing who they voted for.”
