Wow. Even in the messy world of political marriages this one comes as a shock. Politico is reporting that Al and Tipper Gore (Al and Tipper Gore, for goodness sakes!) are separating after 40 years of marriage. From Mike Allen.
In an “Email from Al and Tipper Gore,” the couple said: “We are announcing today that after a great deal of thought and discussion, we have decided to separate.
“This is very much a mutual and mutually supportive decision that we have made together following a process of long and careful consideration. We ask for respect for our privacy and that of our family, and we do not intend to comment further.”
The e-mail was obtained by POLITICO and confirmed by Kalee Kreider of the office of Al and Tipper Gore. Kreider said there would be no further comment.
