The article presents a fictitious letter from the U.S. vice president Al Gore, discussing the issue of raising campaign funds for the 2000 Presidential election. The vice president suspects the possibility of raising $2,500,000 in party-building donations and $1,500 per donor for the his campaigns. He reflects his interest in talking with some advisors about fund-raising strategies. The vice president's advisor suggests him for seeking a faithful companion, an uncomplaining best friend who gives only unconditional love. This is because after six years in office, Gore is considered suitable for the presidentship.
