  •  Of course, Bush v Gore (0+ / 0-)

    has no precedential value.  The Supremes said so when they handed it down.  

    At least, so they said at the time.  The question is what happens when it's invoked in the lower circuits and the district courts.  Any legal eagles out there with access to legal research databases know anything about that?
