    No, we'd just have the disaster of Bush now instead of being done with it. Two disasters in a row - we really know how to pick 'em don't we!

    yep, I watched it in that frame of mind, too. my regret, as I stated on a similar thread, is that I voted for either of them.

    I don't know if I'd say that. Seems a little funny that after Florida was called for Gore, Bush called his brother and suddenly it was too close to call. It's a very interesting coincidence, don't you think?

    Yeah, exactly. If anything Florida taught me was not voting for any office, if the election is close some darn fool will try to figure out who would would have voted for if you had voted.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Karl Rove? Except Jeb was right. I'm sorry, I just can't believe the GOP was doing voter suppression/election fraud in 2000. They didn't start that until Barack Obama came on the scene, a desperate response to his agenda of imposing Shiria Law on America starting with legalizing gay marriage.

    Well I do think that Bush probably legitimately won. We'll never really know.

    I agree with you. I was tired of the vote, the recount, the recount of the recount followed by a recount of the recount of the recount. It got to a point I didn't care who was declared the winner, just get this dang thing over with.

    I remember the 1960 election vividly, I was still in High School, so I wasn't yet 21 and couldn't vote. But there was plenty of evidence of voter fraud in Illinois and Texas, which a couple of thousand votes could have given Nixon the victory. But Nixon decided not to push it, he basically said it would cause to much of an upheaval and perhaps unrest to do so. He didn't want to put the nation through such a torturous process. So with class, one of the few class acts Nixon accomplished he conceded. This is something Nixon will always have over Al Gore.
