Kristen Gore Rips Hillary?

I have been a skeptic of Al Gore jumping into the Democratic presidential primary, but maybe I shouldn’t be… according to this review of a new book by Kristen Gore, the former vice president’s daughter, her latest work is a thinly-veiled diatribe against the Clintons. I have a hard time believing that Kirsten would take shots at the Clintons without her father’s tacit approval.

Kristin Gore is a comic writer, but there’s nothing remotely funny about her scathing fictional portrait of Clinton… The roman a clef doesn’t stop with the president and vice president. The first lady has a nasty disposition, a “glossy smile,” a “hairsprayed coif” and “heavy perfume” (it makes Sammy sneeze), and her “paranoia was legendary.” … As it is, Kristin Gore has not told us anything about Bill Clinton that we haven’t known for years. Still, for Al Gore’s daughter to remind us of the former president’s failings (and of her father’s virtues) in this very public manner, at a time when Al Gore may still seek his party’s presidential nomination, and Clinton’s wife might be his rival, leaves us wondering if her excursion into recent history can be entirely innocent of political intent.

If Kristin Gore is any reflection of her father, he might have enough motive to jump into the race, even if it just ensures an Obama nomination… A form of payback, perhaps.
