    Florida was a nightmare because the media reported the state's result as decided before the Republican-heavy panhandle was done voting. Lots of people on military bases were waiting to get off of work to go out and vote.

    If the state had been given to Gore after that attempt to suppress Republican voting, it would have been an injustice.

    If Gore did get robbed(I don't believe he did), It was the luckiest thing to happen to America in some time. I shudder to think of Gore dealing with those 4yrs.

    Thank God Clinton and Gore decided to send Elian back to Fidel and choose Easter weekend to send in the stormtroopers! Thank God they infuriated enough Cuban Americans to have Florida go Republican!!!

    if the people who presumably knew him best in the state of tennessee could have stomached voting for him, florida would have been moot.


    go figure, huh?

    And if Stevens says so it must be so?

    Psst. The Bush appeal was -- uhm -- GRANTED. That kind of places Mr. Justice Dimbulb in the minority camp.

    So, what Stevens considers a "frivolous" appeal was found not to be.

    Stevens, as was so frequently the case, was just -- what's that word again? -- oh yeah -- wrong.
