The long road to the White House
Gore

Opinion polls showed the two presidential contenders running neck and neck throughout most of the closely-fought campaign.

Democrat candidate Al Gore was often criticised for being too wooden. Even many in his own party dismissed him as capable, but dull.

It was only when he gave his wife Tipper a big kiss for the camera - on the final day of the convention - that his popularity ratings shot up, briefly overtaking George Bush.
