This was an in-depth look at the major events surrounding the 2000 election. Gore supporters will no doubt paint the author as a Gore-hating, staunch Conservative because he says nothing bad about Bush or his backers, and Gore pretty much oozes sleaziness.

Early on in the book there's a lot of good analysis on the early vote call in Florida, and the joke disguised as the Voter News Service. The network bias in calling Gore states early while not calling Bush states for up to two hours after polls

The amount of research and interviews displayed in this book is amazing. Highly recommend for the objective scope and depth of research on the events from Election Day to the slating of electors. For a book on what some would consider a dry subject, it had an easy flow and a steady pace. In other words, it wasn't boring and didn't drag. ;)

Totally false. Anyone with any sense knows that GWB stole the election and we're still paying for it.

This is the exact reason the electoral college should be done away with. The wrong people can get elected. This whole thing was such a fiasco while they were sorting out the vote in Florida.
