News Gore discusses life, campaign with students By Cavalier Daily Staff | September 29, 1999 Gore, the wife of Al Gore - vice president and democratic presidential candidate - said her husband "is the guy who's perfect to be the next president." Gore met with about 10 students at the Corner's Espresso Royale coffeehouse, drank a hot café mocha and fielded questions about campaigning, affirmative action and the 2000 presidential election. Responding to a question about the recent debate surrounding the use of race as a factor in the University's admissions process, she said she did not know all of the details but said she and her husband strongly support affirmative action. She added that while she is campaigning, her husband's bid for the presidency is her main focus, but that her family must always find a balance between campaigning and family life. "The pressures are enormous," Gore said.
