Nashville, TN - Former Vice President Al Gore and his wife, Tipper, are separating after 40 years of marriage.

According to an e-mail circulated among the couple’s friends and obtained by The Associated Press on Tuesday, the Gores said it was “a mutual and mutually supportive decision that we have made together following a process of long and careful consideration.”

Gore spokeswoman Kalee Kreider confirmed the statement came from the Gores, but declined to comment further.

Al Gore lost the 2000 presidential election to Republican George W. Bush. He has since campaigned worldwide to draw attention to climate change, which in 2007 led to a Nobel Peace Prize and an Oscar for the documentary “An Inconvenient Truth.”

Tipper Gore is known for her advocacy on mental health issues.

Regardless of how one feels about Mr. Gore's politics or his position on global warming, I do not think the breakup of his marriage is the subject for jokes or frivolity.

The reason that Al Gore lost Florida (and the 2000 Presidential election), is because of the ridiculous raid which Janet Reno authorized at the home which Elian Gonzales (6 year old Cuban refugee) was staying at. As a result of that horrible raid, the Cuban-American community voted for Bush over Gore; their vote, essentially decided the 2000 election. In retrospect, the raid was ill planned, ill timed, and used an excess of manpower. The photo of Elian screaming, while rifle toting federal agents were in his home, was not too cool an event for the Democrats.

"American History"? Are you kidding? World history! The Patriarchs & Moses would be in awe of Al Gore! What a Visionary!

Al Gore was always a friend to Israel and lest you all forget even chose an observant Jew as his running mate. Most likely he lost the Southern states because he had a Jew on his ticket!

This is a joke, right? Greatest perpetrator of the global warming hoax. He has really gone off the deep end lately in his political pronouncements. He may have once been a friend of EY. I don't believe he is any longer.

In the end, greed and arrogance have no friends. That is precisely how a marriage of 40 years can end. People change. Al definitely fits the bill.

The breakup of any home is a tragedy especially after 40 years. I just lost my cheyshik to get married after 40 years single. I guess I am not looking forward to losing much. But the Mizbeyach will not cry at this divorce or my staying single!

Where'd they file? Not every state has community property and some either tell women with no kids to go get a job or give her everything for her years of putting up with him and raising his children. If it's friendly, you're probably right but if not....
