NITPICKING: An NPR reporter remarked that "near-First Lady" Tipper Gore was campaigning for John Dingle in his Democratic primary contest. "Near-First Lady"? Excuse me? Would any other wife of a losing presidential candidate (no matter how close the race) be referred to as "near-First Lady"? I think not. "Close" only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades. The same goes for "near." Gore lost. NPR needs to get over it.
