    If you plan on throwing a dinner party full of VIPs, whatever you do, don’t seat Bob Woodward next to Al Gore.


    In a speech at the Organization for International Investment’s annual dinner at D.C.’s Ritz-Carlton Hotel on Thursday, the famed Washington Post journalist, who helped uncover the Watergate scandal, disclosed that he doesn’t enjoy the former vice president as a tablemate.









    Describing an event where he was paired up next to the monotone-talking ex-vice president, Woodward said, “Now, sitting next to Gore is taxing.”

    After some laughs from the crowd, Woodward continued, “In fact, it’s unpleasant.”
    Woodward offered up another tidbit from the conversation with his dinner companion. The investigative reporter asked the politician, more than five years after leaving office, how much the public knows about what went on during the Clinton administration. Gore replied, “One percent.”


    Woodward admitted that revelation made him feel a bit icky, saying, “I kind of died inside and have to confess to having an unclean thought.”


    He then dug a little deeper, asking Gore, if the former VP were to write a memoir, how much Americans would know then. Gore retorted, “Two percent.”


    A spokeswoman for Gore had no comment.

    So Gore was offhandedly saying there was a bunch of stuff going on behind the curtain that was possible very wrong...

    I think Gore at least recognizes that the american public really doesn't want to read a book written by him.

    Four boxes keep us free: the soap box, the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box.
