166. You're welcome, and I know. I still don't understand how this was allowed
to happen, since we all understand the illegitimacy of this election. Yet Bush* moved in and moved on, as if he had a mandate! The fact that Gore won is obvious and I can't help but think what a huge difference his presidency would have made in this country, for ordinary citizens, in our history, and in the perception of the rest of the world! It's just mind-boggling! ;(

But 2004 hit much closer to home with me, since I thought we were prepared for this. I finally went to bed after 3am, on election night, after hearing Dan Rather say that we wouldn't know the results for 12 days, since that's how long it would take for the provisional ballots to be opened in Ohio. But I was awakened the next day, by a phone call from a friend, telling me that Kerry had just conceded. I was totally dumbfounded, since I was well aware of all the voting irregularities that had yet to be investigated. And, of course, I belong to DU. But, from what I've read, Kerry did win, as well. Why we didn't fight for this remains a complete mystery to me. :shrug: :-(
