The article presents an open letter from U.S. Vice-President Al Gore. Gore writes that it was with a somewhat heavy heart that he took the oath of the office of Vice President for the last time. He feels that it will be nice to take the oath of the office of President the next time around. But he assumes, that will not be as special. Then he discusses a fundraiser that he attended, during the final days of his campaign, at a Buddhist monastery in California. He laments the brouhaha raised over the fundraiser.
