    Look Al, I know the campaign generated so much heat it increased global warming. That's all Hillary's fault. She was the stubborn one.

    Did you really still have your mom sining lullabies to you at the age of 27? And why "Look for the Union Label," your parents were lawyers.

    Gore gives Obama his top ten advice on his presidency:

    10. Listen to even the inconvenient truths.
    9. Don't make any passionate kiss embraces with your wife.
    8. Don't let Bill Clinton overshadow you.
    7. Don't let Hillary Clinton scare you.
    6. Remember that your VP really just wants your job!
    5. Stay green, environmentally but not politically
    4. Never show your emotions, unless it will cost you an election.
    3. Remember we are Harvard grads, so its okay to be called elite!
    2. Don't claim you invented internet campaigning donations.
    and most of all
    1. Make sure your chads don't dangle.

    If I promise to take a real stand on global warming you have to promise to stop cutting and coloring your hair yourself. that half a blonde faux-hawk isn't working for you at all.
