Gore gives his State of the Union address. Not!

Al Gore didn't win the presidency. Americans wanted limited government and balanced budgets and they thought Gore was too much in favour of big government and excessive spending. Little did they know that in six years Gore, without changing his positions, could be made to look like a conservative in comparison to what they got. Gore recently appeared on the Saturday Night Live comedy show in the US. And he delivered the State of the Union address that he would have given had he been president today. Okay, it's not actually the address he would have given but it is actually rather funny satire which includes him taking a few digs at himself. It is much easier to find some of your own foibles funny when you don't think God picked you for political office. Enjoy the skit.
