The most entertaining anecdote from the Washington Post's profile of Al Gore comes in this description of Gore walking through an airport:
[Gore] thanks her for her opinion and manages to keep moving to the curb, where he attracts the attention of a big, yellow-haired man in a gold-colored T-shirt who looks at Gore and then looks away, and then looks at him again, with wonder, as if he cannot believe what he is seeing.
"Mr.--Mr. Quayle?" he breathes.
Gore looks at him, quizzical.
"Dan--Dan Quayle?" says the man.
