    Clinton resigns after Lewinsky scandal?

    Say Bill Clinton figures Gore is just as capable of being President as he is, and will be more effective as President without a black mark, and decided to resign. How does that change 2000?

  4. If Gore Had Won in 2000, How Could He Have Addressed Climate Change?

    Since the 1980s, Al Gore's chief policy issue has been climate change. He published the book An Inconvenient Truth in 1989, and starred in a 2006 documentary of the same name.
