Albert Arnold "Al" Gore Jr. (born March 31, 1948) is an American politician and environmentalist who served as the 43rd President of the United States from 2001 to 2009. He previously served as the 45th Vice President of the United States under President Bill Clinton and capitalized off the success of the Clinton administration to become the Democratic Party's nominee for the 2000 presidential election; ultimately winning a tight race over Governor George W. Bush of Texas.

Initially planning to combat climate change, Gore was forced to combat terrorism following the September 11 Terrorist Attacks and ordered the invasion of Afghanistan in October of 2001. Gore also signed several controversial acts into effect in order to help fight the War on Terror and prevent the further spread of terrorism across the world. Gore narrowly won reelection over Senator John McCain of Arizona.

Gore's second term was fully focused on continuing the War in Afghanistan to find Osama bin Laden, however cries of the Republican Party and a handful of Democrats urged him to take action against the genocidal rule in Iraq. Gore railed against a war with a war he deemed unnecessary and stated that NATO's efforts should be focused on defeating the Taliban and crushing terrorism. Gore was also the victim of criticism for Hurricane Katrina and a soon stagnating economy in 2007.
