mirror for Mr. Gore?
According to this story:
"Gathered at the long table in the Cabinet room of the
West wing, the president's Cabinet recently listened to
Vice President Al Gore - 'the techno-nerd,' as some at the

accountable. Looking around the table, Mr. Gore warned
that "one of you" will likely get singled out as personally
responsible for the administration's failure to get on top
of this problem."

dangers of the Year 2000 computing problem, and given that he is
likely to run for election in the Year 2000, it is hard to imagine
that anyone is more likely than Mr. Gore to be singled out as the one
responsible for the administration's failure to tackle this issue...
