Dammit, I hate it when people whine about the 2000 election. "Boo hoo Bush didn't win the majority population!" Neither did Garfield, neither did William B. Hayes, and technically neither did Lincoln nor Clinton in 96. We've been running with the Electoral system for all our life, we shouldn't remove it because some people don't like losing. And what is this stuff about the election being decided by the Supreme Court like it was Bush's fault? Al Gore fought for it!

I remember my AP Government teacher was pro-Gore until Gore brought the lawyers to the election. Then he said he wished he could take his vote back. He also mentioned that Nixon had the same situation when he faced Kennedy, and when given the option to fight for the election he chose to back down instead. My AP Government teacher said it's sad when you wished Nixon was running for office again.
