Today's Surprise Celebrity Break-up: Al & Tipper Gore

In a surprising announcement Al and Tipper Gore sent out an email declaring they were separating. Sorry to hear that news. Politics aside, I hate to hear of any marriage ending and particularly one that lasted this long (40 years). Al Gore may be a fraud and a snake oil salesman on the global warming scam, but I assumed his home life was fine. Since Al lost the 2000 election, Tipper has mostly stayed out of the public view while her husband peddled his environmental ideas (ie: conservation for everyone but him). Let's hope they are able to patch things up and reconcile.

I realize you said that tongue in cheek, but it wouldn't be too surprising if she were NOT 100% in agreement with him politically. IIRC, she made some conservative sounding comments about filth in movies or music. Political spouses don't always share political positions. For example, since Roe v. Wade, every Republican president has claimed to be pro-life while every one of their first ladies were pro-abortion. They stand beside their man and nod their head on the campaign trail, but who knows what is said or thought in private.
