Nice little paean to Al Gore

"I don't mean to paint Gore as a saint, or say there's no ego or calculation behind his actions. Human beings are complicated. But the explanation of his life that makes the most sense, that requires the fewest pop-psychological speculations and conspiracy theories, is that he's a decent, committed human being. He kept plodding on, kept trying, until he got it right. What finally worked for him was artless, unapologetic sincerity. This irony-armored reality TV world goes piss poorly on sincerity. I won't apologize for being inspired by its improbable success." Gristmill: LINK
