This Process Has Transcended Political Differences

Tuesday, 28 November 2000 12:00 AM

Like many Americans, I've been fired up over these proceedings, truly believing that Al Gore will do anything possible to wrestle the presidency away from George W. Bush. Should the vice president succeed, I think our attempts to organize a march on Washington, D.C., in January will be successful, too.

Based on the many, many voices that I hear from throughout our country during my call-in radio show, I've made a case for a "conservative revolution." But you know something? This is deeper than that. This divisive chapter is far more profound than the typical philosophical differences between liberals and conservatives. Too many Democrats agree with me to try and put this debacle into that category. We all need to face the simple fact that this transcends political differences. This is about right versus wrong. Period.

With that in mind, we would all do well to put everything in perspective: Not everyone likes the fact that Florida's secretary of state is a Republican. But she is, and she has finally certified Florida's election after the state's highest court gave her the authority to do so. Not everyone likes the fact that a presidential candidate can win the election based on the electoral votes, not the popular ones. But he can, and George W. Bush did. And not everyone can accept the fact that thousands of ballots are discarded because it's not clear which candidate the person was voting for. But they are, they always have been, and until we bring voting machine technology into the 21st century, there will always be discarded "under-votes." These are all irrefutable and indisputable facts that add up to a presidential victory for George W. Bush.

Oh, I know the high-priced and high-powered Gore attorneys are desperately trying to contest the election, especially in the court of public opinion. Using their best legal bluster, they would pick apart my above-stated facts like vultures on a carcass. But Americans know right from wrong. We understand the rule of law. And we certainly can recognize that the very fact that Gore's lawyers now have to "contest" anything signals that even they recognize that Bush has been declared the official winner.

It's time for Al Gore to give up. It's all over. Pull off your pit bull attorneys, Mr. Vice President, and throw in the towel. At least until the Florida vote was certified, you could contest and argue and challenge and litigate to your heart's content. But now that the state's election has been officially declared, you look punier and weaker than ever. And if you continue to challenge the outcome of this election, you'll be losing the support of thousands of Americans each and every day. Lick your wounds and call it a day, Al. Try again in four years. And again, that's not said out of a spirit of Republican conservatism. That's just the right thing to do.
