Alternate reality: Al Gore has been (s)elected in 2000

I know..

But how would the country and the rest of the world look today if Al Gore would get the Presidency in 2000?

I would not have been at a funeral today of a Soldier who was killed by an IED in Baghdad on the 8th of July. His wife would not be setting at her home this evening trying to figure out just what happened to her life.

I would not have to look into the eyes of my good friend who I mentored since he was 14, now an Army Major, commanding in Central Kentucky as he gives one more eulogy at one more funeral for one more soldier. His love for his country and the Army are as strong as they always have been but his spirit has waned. Part of it is in Iraq and part in Afghanistan and part buried in graves throughout the Commonwealth.
