The couple wrote an email that found its way to Politico, saying, "We are announcing today that after a great deal of thought and discussion, we have decided to separate."

The email continues, "This is very much a mutual and mutually supportive decision that we have made together following a process of long and careful consideration."

The couple has 4 kids.

Roughly one year ago today -- the couple's daughter Kristin Gore filed for divorce from her husband Paul Cusack.

My guess would have been the Clinton's relationship going south before the Gores. Go figure. Watch out interns of the world, Big Al is probably politically speaking, [horny]!

I agree with some. 40 years is a bit too long to be married and just call it quits. Its supposed to be for the long haul. If they need more romance, date each other again. Talk to each other. They just sounded like they were signing a contract for a car lol. It seems like almost everyone is getting a divorce nowadays. I can understand if its completely far out due to one party, but come on?

She's famous for her opposition to freedom of speech and her attempts to censor the music industry. She's pretty much a Rush Limbaugh ditto-head. However, her conservative politics aside, she is a very good looking lady and will not be alone long.

too bad, life is better spent with someone who really knows you. Who can really know you at this point in life, except the person who spent so many years ?

I wonder if any of the d-bags negative posting have been married for 40 years.. OH, probably not..... you're probably less qualified to speak about marriage than a divorcee... both are inept at knowing what marriage is...

by the way, someone here said they'd expect the Clintons to divorce but not the Gores. The Clintons are married for political purposes only, at least that is how it ended up. But you'd think they'd realize they both seem dumber with the sham marriage. Its better politically to just get away from each other.

After 40 years of marriage the only thing I can figure that could be a deal breaker is infidelity. Other than that, if there's still some love between them, there shouldn't be anything that the two of them encounter that they can't overcome. I bet he'll pop up with a new women quicker than she'll get a new man. It's always harder for older women to start thier lives over. I wish her well, he'll be just fine.

These two are parents and grand-parents and after 40 years of marriage, the only thing that could break them up is someone having an affair.



I wonder whether it was Al or Tipper who had an affair with a 20 something trashy ****tail waitress or porn star. And how long until Gloria Alred has a news conference with the slut in question.

My guess is that Tipper caught Al warming someone else's globes.
