158. Sorry, don't see it.
It was Bush/Rove behind-the-scenes machinations, a SCOTUS stacked with Reagan/Bush cronies, a bought-and-paid for corporate media, and the Dems' narrow focus on Democratic counties that did it. Even if your interpretation of their strategy is correct, the Dems were ineffective (as they always are) in making their case to the public and responding effectively to the coordinated GOP intimidation campaign occuring both on the airwaves and in the buildings where the recount was happening.

Nader's campaign may have had a marginal impact on Election Day, but not enough to help tilt the election, imo, like Perot did in '92.
