Who's the Next President?

Still no President Elect.  Yesterday's decisions by the US Supreme Court and the Leon County (FL) Court should have put an end to the legal maneuvering.  Apparently not.  The Gore team is now appealing the Leon County decision to the Florida Supreme Court, which was also instructed by the US Supreme Court to clarify its previous ruling.  At least now everything's in one Court.  The Gore team says that this is their final battle.  I somehow don't believe that they'll give up that easily if the ruling goes against them.  I could be wrong.  Perhaps Vice President Gore will surprise everybody and for once actually do what he says he's going to do.  He's lost all credibility.  Perhaps he can salvage some small amount of dignity.
