    He'd win. It would be embarassing but the votes are what matters, not that the candidate concedes.

    Gore took back his concession and got a recount. The concession is just a courtesy, and has no power to change the actual results.

    The concession would not count. Gore conceded and would've taken it back if he could've arranged things to his liking.
