You Won It, Elian Won It

He did so during a time of great peace and prosperity – all of which should have benefited Al Gore.

But you helped Bush win. The talk radio show hosts across America – the listeners – the Internet users – the grass roots of the Republican Party who wanted reform – made the difference.

Exit polls showed that honesty and trustworthiness was the No. 1 concern for voters across America. Seventy-eight percent of Bush voters said they voted for Bush on this issue.

This election was a repudiation of Bill Clinton.

Other factors helped as well.

One was little Elian and his heroic mother. She perished trying to bringing her son to America. His freedom, thanks to Clinton-Reno, was ripped from the privacy of his home.

Cuban-Americans, who voted for Bill Clinton in 1992 and 1996, remembered Elian on Election Day.

Florida was the crucial state. Had Elian stayed, Gore would have been a hero and would have won Florida.

Another unsung hero in helping to elect George W. Bush was first lady Hillary Clinton.

Mrs. Clinton sapped Gore of national campaign funds and diverted precious national media attention from him and his campaign.

Gore was loyal to the Clintons. But like so many others, he discovered Tuesday that loyalty flows one way.

Now the work ahead is to return America – as Reagan would say, "to make America great again."

We can do that by having Congress and a new Justice Dept. conduct investigations into the massive abuse of power that has taken place during the Clinton-Gore years.
