Actually, both Gore and Bush are of the type, though Bush did have his
period of hanging out with the proles during his wildcatting days in
west Texas, which is where he gets much of his 'aw shucks' persona

Southern blueblood gentleman.
"In the end more than they wanted freedom, they wanted security. When the Athenians finally wanted not to give to society but for society to give to them, when the freedom they wished for was freedom from responsibility, then Athens ceased to be free." --- Edward Gibbon (1737-1794)
"A person who wants a society that is both safe and free, wants what never has been, and what never will be." --- Thomas Jefferson
"It's a Republic, if you can keep it..." --- Benjamin Franklin
