GuestUB Dan, don't try to confuse Kendall and my other liberal friends with facts.
Bart, I think there was ONLY one reason for leaking the report to the press before even the one Republican on the Commission had an opportunity to read it: politics.
The commission's chairman would not even release an advance copy of the report to the Governor of Florida (who had requested it). Somehow, it made it's way to the press though, didn't it?
If a commission such as this one wants to be taken seriously, it must, I believe, be truly bi-partisan. This one certainly is not.
UB Dan reported the most meaningful statement in the report: "The commission found no evidence of conspiracy by Florida officials."
Bush won, Kendall. Get over it, and work to get YOUR man elected NEXT time (if you can). :>)
