Democrat for President


Restoring America's Economic Strength…


…That means giving Americans the tools they need to compete in the world economy -- the best educational system in the world, job training, and day care. It also means forging a responsible budget policy that restores confidence in our economy.


…It means making it easier for families to buy their homes and send their kids to college. It means stopping the export of jobs overseas.


Al Gore can get things done. He has a record to prove it. He chaired the first hearing ever held on hazardous chemical waste and the pollution of groundwater. He helped write laws to clean up toxic dumps, protect children from defective infant formula, and establish a national organ donor network that has saved thousands of lives.


AL GORE: Leadership to Renew the American Spirit


A Clean Environment -- Al Gore was a principal author of the landmark Superfund Act to clean up hazardous waste dumps and is now chairman of the leading environmental protection group in Congress. He will fight to reverse the trends that threaten deterioration of our water, air, soil, and ozone layer.


A Healthy Nation -- Al Gore will work to lower health care costs, provide long-term care for the elderly, reduce infant mortality, and find cures for Alzheimer's and AIDS.


Social Security -- Al Gore will protect our Social Security system so that older Americans can be assured financial security.

The Best Schools -- Al Gore will help America compete for the future with sharper minds, not lower wages, by investing in early education, doing more to attract our best and brightest college graduates to the teaching profession, and setting a national goal of creating the best schools in the entire world.


A Just and Fair Society -- Al Gore will continue the struggle to expand opportunities for all Americans and to fight for civil, equal, and human rights.


Sensible Farm Policies -- As the owner of an active livestock farm, Al Gore has offered a program to enlarge the nations conservation reserve, improve commodity policies and promote rural economic development.


Building a Safer World through a Strong America


"Our most serious challenge as a people is to end the arms race and build a safer, saner world."


The Soviet Union has a new and energetic leader. The free world desperately needs a leader who can match him, test him, bargain with him, and make the most of what might be an historic opportunity to verifiably control the arms race on terms that enhance our national security.


Al Gore is one of the leading arms control experts in the country. His arms control plan would make it impossible for either superpower to gain an advantage from a first strike.


"Gore has demonstrated an ability to master large and complicated problems -- nuclear arms control being the foremost example." -Morton Kondracke The New Republic


Al Gore is a United States Senator from Tennessee. He and his wife Tipper have four children: Karenna 14, Kristin 10, Sarah 9, and Albert 5.


Al was raised in Carthage Tennessee, and in Washington, D.C., where his father served in the U.S. Senate. He earned a scholarship at Harvard, and graduated with honors in 1969. He then volunteered for the U.S. Army and served in Vietnam.


After returning home to Tennessee, he worked as a newspaper reporter for the "Tennessean" and studied theology and law at Vanderbilt University. He was elected to the House of Representatives in 1976.


In 1984, he was elected to the Senate with more votes than any other candidate in Tennessee history.


Tipper Gore is an author and a leading advocate for family values. When the Senate is not in session, the family lives on a small livestock farm near Carthage.


I served in Vietnam. I know there are better ways to resolve our differences than through war.



“Gore has returned to what was a simple winning formula for the Democratic Party, an activist foreign policy backed by military strength and an energetic domestic policy in behalf of the economically weak and vulnerable.” -William Shannon Boston Globe
