1. Neither link works for me
The first one takes me to the CNN main page and the second one gets me a 404.

2. One link is CNN's home page, the other is a 404 error
Edited on Mon Sep-22-03 10:17 PM by Wonk
and it's nice when thread titles give some indication of the contents of the thread :eyes:

You still have time to edit.

5. Is this for real????
Edited on Mon Sep-22-03 10:23 PM by BattyDem
If President Gore runs for re-election, everything changes!

Here's the working link:
http://www.cnn.com%7C2003%7CALLPOLITICS%7C09%7C22%7Cele...


on edit: rabid_nerd - how did you find that page? I did a search on CNN's web site and it doesn't come up. On their Election 2004 page, they do list Gore as "undecided" but I didn't see a link to that article.

7. Note the URL
no / after .com proves it's not on CNN's server.

15. Not real...
What I wish was printed instead of Moseley Braun's announcement.

In fact it's lifted pretty much from that page from today.

But it also serves as a joke (heart-attack inducing) to the supporters of the 10 who can't stand the thought. Oh, and to give Cheney his worst nightmare.

17. Pretty well done
Of course, my browser asked me if I wanted to continue because I was feeding a username into the web address (the "@" gave it away).

Cruel hoax, but pretty realistic-looking page. In fact my first thought was that it was one of those "practice stories" CNN does, like the obituaries of living people that were found a while ago.

18. Hoax, wish...
Depends on POV.. I wish it WAS real...

I just wanted to stop some hearts with people who want to keep him out, but I'm surprised there's no instant Gore bashing..

10. Sorry...
It's a joke.. Or a wish page... More the latter for us, the prior for people who don't want Gore to enter...

14. You did a really good job, though
Did you copy CNN's source code lock stock and barrel?

*impressed*

16. Relatively easy...
<base href={old URL}>

in the header of the page fixes most relative URLs

Then it's just change some pic URLs, edit the text, fudge the URL, and viola!
