From the "Who woulda...

...thunk it?" file: Al Gore is now richer than Mitt Romney. From an article in Forbes (my emphasis):

The creation and sale of Current TV is the latest of a number of Gore’s savvy business moves since leaving the White House in 2001, when one of his most valuable assets was a Tennessee farm pasture worth less than $250,000, according to public documents. Taking into account taxes to be paid on the deal, possible earlier debt and the fact that Gore’s representatives declined to comment, FORBES conservatively estimates the former vice president’s net worth to be at least $300 million, making him wealthier than unsuccessful Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
