Despite the things that they say, they are actually quite a powerful family of thieves behind the scenes. Daddy Bush controls a lot of money and all Junior did for 8 years was do his bidding.

So was President Bush. VP Gore quit/dropped ou of every grad schools he was admitted.....

let's see....

President Bush
1. worst rating in the history
2. the most unpopular & corrupted president in the history
3. the highest national debt in the history
4. arguably the most blatant criminal in the history who won't even get prosecuted
5. Probably the most hated man in the world

VP Al Gore
1. Noble Peace Prize winner
2. major driving force in revolutionizing Internet
3. raised awareness in global warming and probably one of few major influences in pushing for green friendly policy
4. people rather listen to Gore's dull lecture than Bush's repetitive 9/11 this, 9/11 that talk

I guess after all... Gore didn't need grad school to accomplish what he accomplished...
