Growing up inside the Beltway, the son of Senator Albert Gore, Sr. was destined for politics. A Harvard graduate and an Army journalist in Vietnam, Gore has a reputation for seriousness: At one time he reportedly devoted two hours a day to learning the technical details of nuclear arms control. And his studiousness has paid off -- the advance for his best-selling environmentalist tract, Earth In The Balance, totalled $100,000.
In 1993, Gore appeared on the "Late Show with David Letterman." What was the first question Letterman asked him?
"Doesn't it drive you crazy being an underling to a draft-dodging sleaze?" "Hey, have you taught Bill how to inhale?" "Don't you have anything better to do than show up here?" "So, have you fixed the government?" "Clinton and Gore: Gone in Four?"
Which of the following could Gore not put on his résumé?
reporter for the Nashville Tennessean tobacco farmer Sierra Club member divinity student Angus beef farmer
