One of the hardest things to do is to jump back into the dating game after years of being single, but Al Gore seemed to have no problems with the transition, as the Nobel Peace Prize laureate and former Vice President is now in a serious relationship with Elizabeth Keadle.
50-year-old Keadle is a high class Democratic donor from Southern California with a dedication to environmental causes and science. She and Gore appeared together alongside an electric group of experts and VIPs – Richard Branson, singer Jason Mraz, and actor Tommy Lee Jones – on a business trip to Antarctica back in January. Their intentions were to raise awareness of climate change.
It’s been nearly two years since Al and Tipper Gore shocked the public with news of their separation, which came after 40-years of marriage. The couple was quoted having said at the time of their split:
“A mutual and mutually supportive decision that we have made together following a process of long and careful consideration.”
Sources indicate the couple merely grew apart after Gore’s bitter and surely disappointing loss in the 2000 presidential election.
While Gore has manifested himself as somewhat of a globe traveling environmental activist, Tipper has maintained interest in mental-health promotion and part-time photography. The Gores, whom are the proud parents of four grown children, have not finalized their divorce and for such reason, the two are still legally married.
It is unknown when exactly Gore and Keadle started dating. Sources close to the former U.S. VP indicated that Keadle had nothing to do with his split from Tipper, WashingtonPost.com reported. In fact, the two have been associated with the same groups for multiple years.
Lyle Turner, ex-husband of Keadle and biotech entrepreneur, and Elizabeth were both gratuitous donors to the Democratic party during the early part of the past decade, having donated at least one-hundred-thousand dollars to a DNC building fund.
The office of Gore refused to offer any additional commentary in regards to the status of Gore’s relationship with Turner or Keadles.
