What If ...?

Monday, 27 November 2000 12:00 AM

David Boies, Gore’s top-flight attorney, successfully gets a Leon County judge to go all the way under the contest provisions of Florida law. Thus, a recount of Miami-Dade is conducted – or at least a count of the previously uncounted 10,700 ‘undervote’ – plus the 184 votes in Palm Beach County are ordered into the final total.Plus a few other numbers are recounted, also under court supervision, in Nassau County.

And when this contest phase recounting is done – all under the supervision of the court – Al Gore is now ahead by, say, 210 votes?

What happens then?

What will the country think – and do?

Bush will be well along in his transitioning. He will have announced some Cabinet members and other staffers. The inaugural celebrations will be in the serious planning stage. The country will be getting used to the idea of another Bush in the White House.

Then – Whammo! – the court-ordered final count in Florida shows Gore ahead!

Of course the Bush forces will fight this back to the unfriendly Florida Supreme Court.

All the while, the clock is ticking down to the all-important Dec. 12 deadline for certifying Florida’s crucial 25 electors. The Florida Legislature, under GOP control, will have standby legislation in place to name a Bush slate of electors just in case the normal process is so flummoxed and confused that no slate is ready.

But what would happen if the Florida court system finds Gore won by 210 votes – and yet the GOP-controlled Legislature sent 25 Bush electors to the Electoral College vote on Dec. 18?

Yes, the U.S. House, also GOP-controlled, will support Bush’s slate. And Bush would probably prevail.

But what would people think? Gore would have won the popular vote nationwide and now, under this so-far-hypothetical scenario, he would have won the Florida vote too!

And yet somehow the GOP has given the presidency to Bush!

What would people think? What would Bush himself think?

No wonder the Bush staff in Austin is recommending that people continue to address him as ‘Governor’ instead of ‘Mr. President-elect.’

Clearly they, too, are not yet certain where, when and how this will end.
