We love us some Al Gore—here’s a guy who could have run for president, and probably won, but decided he didn’t want to lose the 30 pounds, and so said, “Screw it!” And today he appears, avec Tipper, at the Wildlife Conservation Society’s Safari! India gala at the Central Park Zoo. (So named for the society’s work with tigers in India. Are they hiring?) Showing their support for the critters will be a motley crew of the famous and semi-famous including Uma Thurman, Wynton Marsalis, and former Lancome model and David Lynch muse Isabella Rossellini. We’re rooting for Senator Obama to pluck Mr. Gore for Secretary of State!
