Letter From Al Gore
To my many DU Friends, I have been away because of my
illness but wanted to share this with you all the letter I
recently received from Al Gore.
This past summer I started a discussion thread in the
Forums titled "Who here is for Al Gore?" Well
I had over 50 responses, and with that I packaged it up and
sent it to Gore. That was about two weeks before 9/11. I didn't
think I'd hear anything because of the the timing.
Well, I want to inform you that he has written to me,
and I would like to share his thoughts with everyone here
at DU. I think he will run in 2004, and he has my support
all the way! Here it is:
November 7, 2001
I am overwhelmed by the many cards and letters of appreciation
Tipper and I have received, and I am truly grateful for
your support and friendship and am pleased to enclose
an autographed photo for your son.
I am proud of our accomplishments during the eight years
it was my privilege to serve as Vice President and my
sixteen years of service in Congress. We brought about
changes needed to make America a better place to live.
Now, in addition to teaching and writing a book with Tipper,
I am focusing my efforts on helping Democratic candidates
who are seeking election in 2002 through a political action
committee I have formed called Leadership '02. I believe
the election of Democrats at all levels of government
will help Americans in the areas they care most most abouteducation,
economic prosperity, and environmental protection.
Of course, our national security must remain paramount
and Democratic Congress would work closely in a bipartisan
manner with the President to ensure that America remains
safe and secure against all threats.
Your support for Leadership'02 will help all of us attain
our vision for an America that is prosperous, secure and
Again, my thanks for your friendship and for caring.
Many Thanks! (hand written)
