Al Gore: Sonís accident taught Gore sensitivity & better parenting

[In 1989, Goreís son, Albert III, suffered a near-fatal traffic accident]. The aftermath of the accident led to Tipperís treatment for depression. In response to the near-loss of Albert, & perhaps to his wifeís depression, Gore became more conscientious about blocking out time in the schedule for the kidsí school games and birthdays. He also worked at becoming a nicer boss. He made, said one former campaign consultant, ďa much more conscious effort, in his own methodical way, to be sensitive to people.Ē
