The Presidential Candidates Bush and Gore
Albert Gore is the 45th vice president of the United States. He was educated at Harvard University and Vanderbilt University Law school. In 1977, Gore was elected to the office of US representative from Tennessee. After seven years he became the state's US senator. He lost the election in 1988 when running for presidency. Apparently he won several primaries but his campaign appeared to be unfocused and unorganized. In 1993 he was nominated as Bill Clinton's running mate for that presidential election.

But then again there are many differences between presidential Bush and Gore besides the fact that one is republican and the other is a democratic. While Bush wants to spend the surplus on tax cuts and private investment accounts to replace Social Security, Gore wants the surplus to be used mostly for reducing the national debt, or helping with the big retirement programs for the future or even for the improvement of schools.
