    2:20 am EST-Florida returns all of its votes slightly in favor of Bush. Gore calls Bush to conceede the election.
    On the car ride to giving his concession speech Gore gets paged and is told that he still has a chance.
    Gore calls Bush to retract his concession (contradicting himself like a true Liberal)
    Now the votes are bein counted. I think Bush will still win because they have yet to count the overseas absentee ballots and those are usually Republican.
    All I know for sure is, we just witnessed history.

    yeah, i'm in calgary and i've been following this as close as my non-cable tv can, and it's definitely the closest race as i've ever heard of.
    i'm hoping that gore wins, but whatever. i can't vote. i think that since the senate and congress are already republican, then it would be good to have the white house democratic so the republicans can't go too extreme to the right. that's the way i see it.
    by the way, the electoral college thing is very weird down there.

    We are in liiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiimbo right now, folks.

    Bush won the popular vote in Florida by just over 1,000 votes, which is less than .5 of 1 percent of a victory. Florida state law requires an automatic recount in those situations, which will be done by a computer and finished on or before the end of the Thursday business day.

    Bottom line is this: It's unlikely that there was a 1,000+ vote miscount. Bush statistically should win the recount, get the 25 electoral collage votes, and be at at least 271, granting him the highest office in the land. Oregon is also undecided at this time, but last I checked (before CNN removed the link) it was leaning towards Bush. However, Oregon doesn't matter - Florida will win or lose the election for the candidates.

    Nothing is certain, but I'd be shocked if Gore won this one at this time.

    Junior will be shocked too. I'm sure he and his worthless father thought little brother Jeb had everything under control with the election tampering.

    That's crazy!

    I don't care that much who wins really, since I don't live in the States.

    But I think it's wild that the votes are that close!

    Al Gore seems like a nerd to me.

    I hope that Bush wins!
    I thought his old man was cool too.

    To be a "sore loser" one must first lose. That hasn't happenned yet

    And there isn't much I wouldn't put past the Bush family. After what their father did to rig the 1980 election (deal to hold the Iranian hostages till Reagan was sworn in), the tampering being alleged in Florida is small potatos (or potatoes for you Quayle fans)

    Yeesh, FORD... next thing you know you'll be saying they should hold a new election since some old people didn't read their damn ballots first.

    Election's over. Who won? We'll know soon, but I'm confident it isn't "Mr. Personality," unless those poll employees failed first grade math

    Al Gore

    Jim, allow me to interupt here and answer that question as if it were directed at me in the beginning.

    First, I would like to mention that the lock box will have two keys, one that would be held by the president, and the other that would be placed in a magnetic box and attached under the back bumper of the senate majority leader's car.

    He he, funny SNL sketch

    You mean he didn't propose a "three lock box"?
