Newer picture[edit]

Any chance to get a newer, more recent picture, for the top right of the page ?

Thank you ! 69.50.70.9 (talk) 04:27, 20 October 2016 (UTC)

Right. It is strange to have a photograph from 20 years ago as the lead picture of a living person who is still pretty much a public figure. Recently Ajw522 inserted a picture from 2009 and Spartan7W reverted to the 1994 official VP portrait. Is it really policy to keep the official portrait of elected persons even 20 years after the deed? Admittedly the selected 2009 picture was not particularly flattering, but surely we can find a decent and recent photograph? I think the official portrait is a better fit for the Vice-presidency section of the biography. Al Gore today is mostly known as a climate activist and his portrait should reflect his current activity and likeness. — JFG talk 22:21, 5 December 2016 (UTC)
Why is Al Gore notable? His father was a U.S. Senator, he became a U.S. Senator, was elected Vice President and ran for president. Using his official Vice Presidential portrait is prudent because it depicts him as he appeared in the very high officer he held. Wikipedia isn't a TMZ profile, we aren't here to keep things up to date, especially as it relates to public figures. You can put new images in sections are articles related to his post-official activities, but his official portrait is higher quality than anything we'll find, and it depicts him as Vice President, the last office he held, and the source of his notability.   Spartan7W §   00:32, 6 December 2016 (UTC)
