Gore was more than a cheerleader.  He held a number of roles during 
that period of time, including chairman of important committees 
overseeing the development of the Internet, controlling funding for 
the Internet, and he was pretty deeply involved in the high level 
work being done from an early stage.

Instead of the role of cheerleader, think of a role more like 
chairman of the board.  And there have been a few chairmen of the 
board that have been well-remembered.
