Or, in the case of the Democrats, how to manage anger to their advantage: “Democrats using 2000 Florida fiasco as object lesson.” Here’s a quote to save:
''When Kerry says, 'Every vote counts, and we're going to count every vote,' that's a reference to 2000," campaign spokesman Michael Meehan said. ''We'll have lawyers in every state who know the law and will make sure every vote is counted."Sure, sure it will! Al Gore won’t mention Florida at all.
The Florida recount, Meehan said, ''is something that's certainly part of the Democratic history." But, he added, "our convention is going to be more about our plans for the future."
