Oh, please don't split the votes between the Democratic and Green Party - that's one reason why Bush was able to win (even without the popular vote - aargh) last time. We must join forces to get Shrub out of the White House

Good question! Actually, I'm surprised that none have shown up. It would be get to get the other side of things. Maybe we are intimating?

Seriously, I find it absolutely fascinating how evenly this country is divided ideologically, politically... That election proved it, and recent polls suggest that the next election could be similarly close.

andylover I hope that I didn't come off pointing fingers at Nader voters. I just meant that althought Gore won the vast majority of the states where Nader voters were strong, the Nader votes did help swing two states , New Hampshire and Florida, to Bush because the margin was so close in the states. There every vote counted, in particular- the infamous Florida.

I was just trying to say that if one were aiming to get Bush out of the White House was thinking either Democrat or Green votes would be the same as taking votes away from Bush, unfortunatly sometimes the G & D voters may split the vote, therefore giving the state to Bush.

The same thing happened somewhat in the '92 election when Perot siphoned some votes from the Republicans, thus helping Clinton in his win.

Sometimes 3rd parties can be deciding factors, even if they do not win.

And just my point about Bush not winning the popular vote is that he was only the third president in history to be elected without the popular vote while winning the electoral college, and the previous 2 were in the 19th century (Rutherford B. Hayes in 1876 and Grover Cleveland in 1888).

Thanks- the local Gore office was surreal and I don't think several of us slept for days.

Bizarre indeed!

Isn't Todd Martin a Republican?

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Do You Approve or Disaprove of George W. Bushes job as president?

I lifted this from an article analyzing Cheney marketability in this years election:

"Some Republican advisers note that, while Cheney's lack of political ambition might be good for Bush, it doesn't help the party groom a candidate for 2008. Of course, similarly, it could leave the door open for a run by Bush brother Jeb, now the governor of Florida. "



WTF!?!?! Are they serious??? Jeb Bush for President?!?! Somebody should annihiliate this family before they take over the world! I mean I just can't believe it. Theyre completely and totally a family of Megalomaniacs. Do they really think the American ppl would have no problem voting for a Bush III?!?! I guess they do... this is crazy. When will the madness stop?
