I think that Bush ought to lay back and avoid being so cocky about 'winning' since no one has 'won' quite yet... he comes across as arrogant which is covering up his anxieties about not being the 'legitimate' winner at this stage of the contest..... at this point he already has the upper hand, but he is acting like he's still grandstanding for position... that's a bad move and it will surely backfire by provoking animosity among his rivals with whom he will have to work and compromise if he does win the White House... right now, his attempts to appear Presidential come across as smug, tacky, and small minded in the light of the significance and closeness of this incredibly important contest... he's acting right now as if he won the election by a landslide, which he clearly did not no matter what the eventual outcome.....

I think you hit the nail right on the head, we have a real tie, there is no winner... neither candidate can claim the moral authority or could now command Presidential legitimacy... so, now what what do we do.....<g> Is there anything in the play book to remedy this tie? How about a coalition type administration, would anything be wrong with that?

Edit: 1, by the way

G.Z., Good morning.

"I think that Bush ought to lay back and avoid being so cocky about 'winning' since no one has 'won' quite yet... he comes across as arrogant ...... smug, tacky, and small minded ... he's acting right now as if he won the election by a landslide, which he clearly did not no matter what the eventual outcome....."

Sorry, but this is BS in my opinion. Bush has made a concerted effort to remain in the background during this past 2 week period, making just minimal appearances and usually only in direct response to Gore.

Gore, on the other hand, is making the rounds like anybody's favorite squeeze. Yesterday, he hit the major networks on no less than 3 shows. Monday night, he came on before football. Remember?

Bush is doing nothing less than preparing to take the reins if that is the outcome. To accuse him of being power hungry or behaving in an inappropriate manner is a pure spinning pile of BS. Would you have the president-elect, whomever it is, do nothing to prepare for the day the keys are handed over? Do you think it's a simple uncomplicated process? Do you think Gore is not doing the same, even with his 8 year home field advantage?

Thanks for you posts, and Good Luck,

Aggie

GZ, I agree about the need to be humble and he should show it more. However, americans generally don't like humble people. Gosh, you are hardly humble!!

If he didn't start the transition process asap, he would have been (and will be) quite behind when he is inaugurated. Since he is a delegater by nature and likes to concentrate on only a few things, I believe he will be handicapped if he is not allowed to go full blast on the transition. He personally has NOT shown the cockiness that you speak of, in my humble opinion.

Hi Aggie,

Certainly Gore is doing the same, but I don't think he's grandstanding... nonetheless, you're certainly entitled to your opinion, all I did was express mine.....<g>

Best Regards,
