        Al Gore Says Now Restaurateur in Tennessee
        LAGOS, Nigeria (Reuters) - Former Vice President Al Gore told a
        Nigerian audience on Thursday that he now runs a family restaurant in
        Gore narrowly lost the 2000 U.S. presidential election to Republican
        George W. Bush.
        ``This has been a time of transition for me and it hasn't been easy,''
        Gore told an audience at the Nigerian Institute of International
        ``For example, there are usually a lot of cars on the road. Now it
        takes a lot longer to get around, and given that I haven't driven for
        eight years, I'm not sure it's wise (to drive),'' said Gore, who was
        driven in a limousine while he was vice president.
        He also told the capacity audience that he had started the new family
        enterprise in his home state.
        ``We have started a family restaurant in Tennessee and we are running
        it ourselves. It is a low-cost restaurant,'' he said. ``I am also a
        visiting professor or VP for short.''
