Spike Jonze on Al Gore

Back in the mid-90s, I thought Tipper Gore was evil incarnate for the work she was doing with the P.M.R.C. to censor music (I still disagree with her on that). In 2000, I, like many folks, just couldn't relate to Al Gore at all (though I'm please to say I didn't vote for Bush!).

I know George Bush won a lot of votes because people liked his "folksiness" while the public perception of Gore was that he was "stiff." You have wonder if this Spike Jonze documentary on Al Gore had been released during that election (if only Al had invented YouTube earlier), how many people could have related to him more...and perhaps changed the course of our history for decades to come.
