    SO scary, because it’s SO possible…

    Here we go again. Gore lost more states than just Tennessee, and any of them would have won him the election. The most likely was Florida where (as it happened) he did win the most votes, as USA Today found when they counted all the ballots later. He also won the popular vote in the entire country, which of course counts for nothing. But he didn’t win in the supreme court, which is where it counts. So, the cartoon is appropriate — the supreme court has established that it will intervene in elections to help Republicans, and could probably be counted on again.

    Yes, Gore won the popular vote by over 500,000 votes, half a million! This lost credibility for the United States around the world. It also pointed out that we need to elect our leaders by popular vote, not by an electoral college. We demand emerging democratic nations around the world elect their leadrs this way, however, we can’t do it ourselves. This may cost Romney the election today too. There is no question as to how the SCOTUS would rule if it comes to that.

    Popular vote only gets you one that most of the country doesn’t want. Popular vote with instant runoff (vote first, second, etc. choice, the least is dropped and alternates added, until a majority is reached) at least gets you someone the majority can at least stand. As it is now, “It won’t mean a thing if your state cannot swing”, and even there it is non-binding. Jill Stein and the Green Party support IRV, so, since your vote for president is meaningless, vote Green and build a real democracy – the rule of all the people. And be sure and vote for the rest of the offices where your vote really counts.

    And when the NY Times counted all the votes not just the votes in the three cherry picked democratic counties, Bush won.

    Your argument is irrelevant. Whether Gore won his own state is irrelevant. If he’d carried Alaska or North Dakota he would have won, too. What it came down to was Florida and hanging chads. As I recall, Tennessee is a reliably red state, and Gore was a Democrat. Not surprised he didn’t win in a Presidential election. Not sure, but did Clinton carry Tennessee in 92 and 96? A Republican state voting for a Republican…how shocking.

    Yup. 5 “Justices” to 4 “Justices”!
    1 little vote…

    It’s going to happen. 2008 was the exception, they knew they couldn’t pull it off after what GWB had done to the country. But they are back to their old tricks and SCOTUS is their final destination. So then we have a fiscal cliff, a lame-duck-congress and no President elect. Who said the Mayans were wrong?

    The folks in Massachusetts can’t stand Romney, but it’s not a “swing state”, they just know his actual performance on the job.

    @rwgate

    Yes Clinton DID carry Tennessee in 92 and 96. So that blows your argument out of the water.

    Tigger, You have no clue. The vote of the people should rule!
    Is that clear enough?

    Hopefully Obama will have a clear electoral college win.

    Why on earth are you talking about Al Gore? He doesn’t have anything to do with anything except getting fat.
