    You're right considering the early, false call of Florida for Gore certainly caused several thousand nonvotes for George Bush in the panhandle.

I’m opposed to dumb wars.' "

    That became clear when Sen. Obama appeared on Meet the Press last Sunday, Tim Russert reminded him of comments he made about Iraq during the 2004 Democratic National Convention.

    Talking about how he would have voted on the '02 authorization, Mr. Russert flashed a quote from then-State Senator Obama on the screen that said: "I'm not privy to Senate intelligence reports. What would I have done? I don't know." In response, Senator Obama said it was probably the wrong time for him to speak out on the war.

    Given that he was the official elected by voters in Florida for that purpose among others what was he supposed to do?

    Gee. Um, recuse himself from the task due to a conflict of interest?

    Nah, "conflicts of interest" are meaningless syllables to Bushes.

    Are they allowed to do that in Florida?

    And I'm assuming the Lt. Gov. would be the one to take over then so would they have any less reason to be possibly biased.

    That said, I'm not sure if governors can selectively recuse themselves in matters like that. An election is not like a court case.

    All 50 states have conflict of interest laws for every state job.
