Actually many people won't and that is the problem. As I have said a
number of times on this list the issue is not who won or who is happy
and who is sad, but rather the perception that the election was stolen;
that Sandra Day O'Connor cares more about her blessed retirement than
legitimate supreme court opinions; that the court has disgraced itself.
Had the count gone forward and Bush won Florida then Rick could not only
be happy, but also know that he had gained his happiness fair and
square. That is the issue.
