Al Gore 2008?

Would this video have changed the results of the 2000 presidential election? Who can say? It would have gone a long way toward humanizing Al Gore for voters who perceived him as stiff and impersonal. Director Spike Jonze followed the VP and his family around for a day during the 2000 campaign and captured this warm and genuine portrait with a small handheld camera. Shown at the 2000 Democratic National Convention in Los Angeles, though not televised, it was never shown again. A real shame. Well, not too late for 2008.
Seen at Kos.
