Gore and wife Tipper did an extensive round of media appearances starting
in mid-November. For example, on November 19, after doing the Today
show early in the morning in New York City, they boarded a plane for Los
Angeles. He quickly refreshed at the hotel and then headed to Larry
King Live, where he was a few minutes late and had make up done in
the chair before the two engaged the veteran talk show host. Gore
interviews on Fresh Air and The Charlie Rose Show aired the
same day. The next day he did eleven interviews with major news outlets.
The media tour continued through Gore's appearance on Saturday Night
Live on December 14, and all looked set for launch of another presidential
campaign. However, the next day Gore surprised everyone by announcingon
60 Minutes he would not run.
