    •  No, It was Gore's Doing (7+ / 0-)

      Florida would've been irrelevant had Gore allowed one of the greatest campaigners in history to deliver his own home state to Gore; who knows, maybe he could've delivered GORE'S home state to Gore.

      My favorite stat from 2000 is that only three incumbent GOP HOR's lost.  Two of them were in Arkansas.

      Gore was as righteously indignant over The BJ as anyone, and he ran an unfocused, terrible campaign.  What's wrong with, "Like the last eight years of peace and prosperity?  Vote for me and you'll get four more.  Thank you, The End"

      Florida, SCOTUS, Gore himself opened the door to all of it, with a little help from "mainstream media liberals", of course.

      The question shouldn't be about his not getting 270 electoral votes.  It should be about his not getting 330.

      •  No, it was the country's doing (0+ / 0-)

        The country sat with their thumbs up their butts while an election was stolen.  

        The fact is, the SC stopped the counting of legally cast votes, gave the election to Bush, and the country did nothing.  

        So put the blame where it belongs:  On Americans who aren't willing to fight for their rights.  

        This thread is full of trolls, at least one of which is very likely a zombie. Zombies and trolls: Seen any elves lately?

        •  It was a lot of people's doing (0+ / 0-)

          but how can you argue with 95,000 v. 537?

          •  I'm not arguing that point (0+ / 0-)

            But the fact is, the SC stopped the counting of legally cast votes and gave Bush the presidency.  

            There's a lot of "if's" here:  If Gore had carried TN, Bush would never have been president.
