    then so-called absentee ballots do not get counted unless the final tally is close and the number of absentee ballots is greater than the difference. Some of the military ballots in Florida weren't available to be counted and the Gore failure to demand a total recount, as well as a count of all absentee ballots, made the charge that they were asking for a discriminatory remedy from the courts valid. Gore messed up. But then, he'd already messed up by choosing Lieberman.
    If we have to have leaders, then it's best they be stupid. Gore was an asset as VP.  On the other hand, in retrospect, there were a lot of stupid compromises made during Clinton/Gore that set the stage for disaster. Clinton learns. I'm not sure Gore does.

    We organize governments to provide benefits and prevent abuse.
