[26] After Clinton was impeached Gore continued to defend him stating, "I've defined my job in exactly the same way for six years now [...] to do everything I can to help him be the best president possible."[26]

Second presidential run (2000)

.There was talk of a potential run in the 2000 presidential race by Gore as early as January 1998.[95] Gore discussed the possibility of running during a March 9, 1999 interview with CNN's Late Edition with Wolf Blitzer.^ Maybe Al Gore's words got taken out of context (which probably happens with at least one thing everyone says each day) but here is an Al Gore quote from an interview with Wolf Blitzer in March of 1999..."During my service in the United States Congress, I took the initiative in creating the internet."

In response to Wolf Blitzer's question: "Why should Democrats, looking at the Democratic nomination process, support you instead of Bill Bradley," Gore responded:
I'll be offering my vision when my campaign begins. And it will be comprehensive and sweeping. And I hope that it will be compelling enough to draw people toward it. I feel that it will be. But it will emerge from my dialogue with the American people. I've traveled to every part of this country during the last six years. During my service in the United States Congress, I took the initiative in creating the Internet. I took the initiative in moving forward a whole range of initiatives that have proven to be important to our country's economic growth and environmental protection, improvements in our educational system.[96]
.Former UCLA professor of information studies Philip E. Agre and journalist Eric Boehlert argued that three articles in Wired News led to the creation of the widely spread urban legend that Gore claimed to have "invented the Internet," which followed this interview.^ As we all know, Gore never claimed to have invented the internet.

Then President George W. Bush meets with Al Gore and the other 2007 Nobel Award recipients, November 26, 2007.
Gore has been involved with the environment since 1976, after joining the United States House of Representatives when he held the "first congressional hearings on the climate change, and co-sponsor[ed] hearings on toxic waste and global warming."[54][55] He continued to speak on the topic throughout the 1980s[56] and was known as one of the Atari Democrats, later called the "Democrats' Greens, politicians who see issues like clean air, clean water and global warming as the key to future victories for their party."[26][57]
In 1990, Senator Gore presided over a three-day conference with legislators from over 42 countries which sought to create a Global Marshall Plan, "under which industrial nations would help less developed countries grow economically while still protecting the environment." [181] In the late 1990s, Gore strongly pushed for the passage of the Kyoto Protocol, which called for reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.[182][183] He was opposed by the Senate, which passed unanimously (95-0) the Byrd-Hagel Resolution (S. Res. 98),[86] which stated the sense of the Senate was that the United States should not be a signatory to any protocol that did not include binding targets and timetables for developing as well as industrialized nations or "would result in serious harm to the economy of the United States".[87 ]
.In 2004 he co-launched Generation Investment Management, a company for which he serves as Chair.^ Gore pays for his extra-large carbon footprint through Generation Investment Management, a London-based company with offices in Washington, D.C., for which he serves as chairman.

[209] A month later, in a speech given at the Jeddah Economic Forum, Gore criticized the treatment of Arabs in the United States after 9/11 stating, "Unfortunately there have been terrible abuses and it's wrong [...] I do want you to know that it does not represent the desires or wishes or feelings of the majority of the citizens of my country."[210] Gore's 2007 book, The Assault on Reason, is an analysis of what Gore refers to as the "emptying out of the marketplace of ideas" in civic discourse during the Bush administration. He attributes this phenomenon to the influence of television and argues that it endangers American democracy. By contrast, Gore argues, the Internet can revitalize and ultimately "redeem the integrity of representative democracy."[211] In 2008, Gore argued against the ban of same-sex marriage on his Current TV website, stating, "I think it's wrong for the government to discriminate against people because of that person’s sexual orientation. .I think that gay men and women ought to have the same rights as heterosexual men and women to make contracts, have hospital visiting rights, and join together in marriage."^ I do not agree with the gay lifestyle nor do i think it is right for anyone to have their civil rights violated because they are gay.
