Letter from Al

December 1999
National Review;12/6/1999, Vol. 51 Issue 23, p58
The article criticizes U.S. Vice President and candidate Al Gore through his fictitious letter addressed to a friend in 1999. The letter discusses the vice president's image as an alpha male and his relationship with other men, including U.S. President Bill Clinton. While he also establishes this image, voters identify him as en environmentalist. Purportedly, the environmentalist-image is preferred by women and makes his wife, Tipper, jealous. Finally, the letter emphasized that the forthcoming election would be about authenticity.
