Al Gore’s hemisphere is heating up. Portland, Ore., police have reopened an investigation into allegations that the former vice president sexually assaulted a hotel masseuse in 2006. Gore denies it, of course, but he could be following in the vaunted footsteps of other recent Democratic politicians.
But that’s unfair to Gore. After all, his separation from Tipper had nothing to do with marital infidelity and everything to do with George W. Bush and those Republican shills on the Supreme Court.
But there’s more. After years of silence, Elian Gonzalez has spoken to foreign reporters. There are no surprises — he tows the communist party line well, trumpeting the mirage of bliss in Cuba. Yet the Clinton administration’s bungled handling of the case likely cost Gore plenty of Cuban-American votes in Florida in 2000, votes that could have helped him secure a narrow win, snag the state’s electoral votes, and spend at least four, and probably eight, gleeful years in the White House with his wife.
So, in the end, the Gores’ separation is Elian’s fault.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
