    Barack Obama is the best thing that has happened to America in the last 100 years.
    Truly, he is the savior of America 's future.

    If you at all care about the legal principles behind this - you should read the book that Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz wrote on it called SUPREME INJUSTICE. Here is an shorter article

    The Supreme Court and the 2000 Election (1) - By Alan M. Dershowitz and Richard A. Posner - Slate Magazine

    again, IF you care about the legal principles..... if all you care about is your guy won - you can disregard all the legal principles in favor of your own political self belief system.

    So now I must agree with Dershowitz or I am just a political hack eh? Why must liberals always set up a situation where only their like minded sources must be believed, or else? What makes Dershowitz, a liberal democrat, the final word on the subject?

    You're just plain wrong, Con. The Constitution says its up to the states how they pick the electors.

    Feel free to take Professor Dershowitz to the woodshed by presenting your arguments against his legal positions.

    Is this thread now about the 2000 elections? I wasn't aware that was the topic. Nah, I'll tell you what, there are I am sure plenty of threads on the subject where you were shown all of this before. Just do a search and re read for comprehension this time.

    Thanks.

    Gore got more of the popular vote than Bush. Yeah, that was some ass-kicking.

    Then why did you spout off about it? You seemed happy to get involved until you were called out and found wanting for the lack of any intellectual argument. Just because someone in the past may have discussed the subject has not one thing to do with your inability to back up your own claims.

    The founders of the*Federal*Constitution had attempted to anticipate contested or very close presidential election results and thus had made provisions to*deal*with such an eventuality. There is a strict timetable between the presidential election and the swearing in of the*successful*candidate as president. There is a constitutional provision that the*House*of Representatives can elect the president should any presidential election result in a tied vote or no candidate securing the required majority in the electoral*college. On the other hand, if there are disputed presidential election results in any of the states that determine the destination of electoral*college*votes then it is the responsibility of the Supreme Court to make a fair and fast judgements to resolve the issue.
    Now seeing as you care so much for the law, then it appears as if the law was followed to the letter. Apparently you didn't agree with the results, and you have that right. But you have no right to question if the law was followed. Because it was followed.
