Albert Arnold Gore, Jr. (born March 31, 1948) is an American politician, author, and activist who was the 41st President of the United States, as well as the senior Senator from Tennessee, and a member of the US House of Representatives. Gore has also, since leaving the White House, founded the Gore Initiative, a green technology investment firm and environmental education company.

After college, Gore served in Vietnam from 1972-1974, and served the time in between that and his tenure in the house working as an aide for his father, Tennessee Senator Albert Gore, Sr.

Forward-thinking, socially liberal, and tech-savvy, Gore found himself becoming opposed to the increasingly conservative policies of Edmund Muskie and Henry Jackson, ostensibly members of his own party, and was unpopular early in his Senate career for this reason. After the election of Lowell Weicker in 1988, Gore found an opening in the Democratic Party, and he founded the New Democratic Caucus to lobby on behalf of a new Democratic Party, one younger, less war-hungry, and more progressive.

The gamble worked, because Gore easily won his party's nomination in 1992, and with it, the White House.
