Well, Larry, you have a right to your opinion, of course.

Bush won the Florida vote and when the count was done again by machine, he won again. I suppose after this election, the democrats are going to insist that the whole elections process return to hand counting ballots. That seems to be the only way they will recognize an accurate count.

I suppose there is no point in asking if those of you, who are so in favor of Gore's position, think it is fair to check only those votes in the counties where the largest number of democratic voters live. I'm sure you think it is. You probably also think it is fair to have the counters "guess" what the intent of the voter was when questionable ballots are found.

Gore will win, but it's going to be a shabby win. Not a win to be proud of at any rate.
