    Former Vice President Al Gore to separate from wife Tipper after 40 years of marriage

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Former Vice President Al Gore and his wife, Tipper, are separating after 40 years of marriage.

    According to an e-mailed statement obtained by The Associated Press on Tuesday, the Gores said it was "a mutual and mutually supportive decision that we have made together following a process of long and careful consideration."

    Gore spokeswoman Kalee Kreider confirmed the statement came from the Gores, but declined to comment further.

    Al Gore lost the 2000 presidential election to Republican George W. Bush. He has since campaigned worldwide to draw attention to climate change, which in 2007 led to a Nobel Peace Prize and an Oscar for the documentary "An Inconvenient Truth."

    Tipper Gore is known for her advocacy on mental health issues. She became interested partly because her mother suffered from depression.

    The Gores have four adult children.

    Wow. Didn't see that one coming at all.
    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

    WASHINGTON Former Vice President Al Gore and his wife, Tipper, are telling friends they "grew apart" after 40 years of marriage and there was no affair involved.

    According to two long-time close associates and family friends, the Gores say they are separating amicably. Their decision came after a "long process of careful consideration," said one of the associates.

    They both spoke on condition of anonymity.

    The associates said the Gores, over time, had carved out separate lives, with the former vice president on the road frequently. One of the associates said: "Their lives had gotten more and more separated."

    Seems surprising after such a long time. I wish them both the best.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Re: Al and Tipper Gore to separate after 40 years

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    So people can make jokes about Gore and the environmental movement and relate it to their marriage.

    Sad to hear about their marriage though and wish them both the best. I guess the spark just died for the two of them.
