Splitting Up

Al Gore Divorce from Tipper

Maybe this is why he's been silent on the oil spill? Al and Tipper Gore are separating after 40 years of marriage, according to Politico. The couple told friends via email that, “This is very much a mutual and mutually supportive decision that we have made together following a process of long and careful consideration.” The couple has four children; they celebrated their wedding anniversary, which took place in the National Cathedral in 1970, just two weeks ago.
