    and didn't bring it during the suit and tie riot. Imagine a bunch of fat Republicans trying to close down a recount if LBJ was on top of the ticket.
    But Gore, like current Democrats, was looking forward to a time of healing. Bush's people would not have conceded that fight and would have taken it up in the Florida courts again, statewide instead of the few contested counties which was the mistake, to reach the Supremes again if needed.

    No spine. Just like Obama.

      IMO at the time botht he GOP and the DEMS wwnt into the recount trying to play games. The DEMs should have gone after a state-wide recount right from the beginning.

        •  Yeah yeah yeah it's all on the DEMs (0+ / 0-)

          Even in this diary, we find people who cannot manage to break away from the circular firing squad obsession.

          •  do you have a non meta analysis? (0+ / 0-)

            The right decided to take no prisoners right as the Dems decided to triangulate after Reagan won in 1980.

            As for circular firing squad? Some idiot left around here advocate sitting out but it's certainly not the majority.

            Of course it's all on the Dems - because you don't blame THE OTHER TEAM for playing to win when it's your team playing not to lose. Would I prefer a Rockefeller Republican Party in the minority? Sure. But they didn't ask me and I don't work and vote for them.

            No one outside the serial posters cares about dkos meta. I have other hobbies as well.
