Why are the Gore's so cheap?
Take, for example, former Vice President Al Gore and his lovely wife, Tipper. Sources close to them and to Springsteen tell me Tipper tried to get free tickets to the Springsteen show for the entire Gore staff. That didn't work, and she was then told even paid admission would be hard to come by.
"They wound up being offered four," says a source. "But when they were asked to pay $75 apiece, they said forget it. And you know, that's why Gore isn't president, in a nutshell."
One thinks of the slum property they own, the couple of hundred dollars they donated to charity a few years back and you are left to ponder are these the cheapest people on the face of the earth? Why don't they give back some of what they have been given?
