    Great Story, but doesn't Benefit

    I thought that this book was written very well. Mr. Bugliosi makes a very clear argument, but misses the point about what the election was really about. Everything in this country is related to politics. If you aren't politically stable then you won't win at anything. The Supreme Court made a very good decision. Although, Gore was a VP for 8 years, Bush had more of a political advance because of his father. The Democrats did try to get recount after recount, and no good results came out from that. Bush won the election fare and square, because Gore's team couldn't present an argument during their trials. I think people should just let the 'bad election' go. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who thinks the constitution can be broken by a higher level of law.

    Great book but misses the real point -nepotism

    FORGET ABOUT the recounts, the undervotes, chads, ballots, all those issues. What the author touches on but I wished had elaborated upon more is NEPOTISM. In every other regard this book is thorough and worth reading. The main issue, as I see it, is that the Justices appointed to the court by Bush's father had no right voting in the Bush v Gore case. The right wing will object with 'what about the votes by justices (small j now) appointed by Clinton? Fools! It wasn't Bush vs Chelsea Clinton!!!! No immediate relative of a past president should be permitted to run for president or vice president. As much as I admire Hillary Clinton - the same goes for her. The power of the office makes it to dangerous for nepotism to defeat our system of government. Shame on the Bushs! If something were to happen to 'W' does Jeb think he immediately becomes the next president. WAke up and read this book!

    Bush/Cheney: America's 2nd Choice

    A very convincing read, for those left who actually require convincing. It is heartbreaking, however, to know that some Americans choose to sleepwalk through this critical time in history obliviously supporting 'the president you'd feel comfortable having a beer with but wouldn't trust teaching my children to read,' when a crime was committed on the nation by the highest court in the land, declaring George W. Bush President-Select. Bugliosi should be required reading for every 12th grade social studies class, after the scandal becomes exposed in a few years time and time proves Bugliosi dead-on accurate.

    This should be required reading for government classes

    Bugliosi is on point. That America, a country who regularly pontificates on free elections has had this debacle of a coup is shocking. That so few are willing to come out and be outraged is deplorable. Whether you're a Bush or Gore person, you cannot ignore the illegal moves of the so called 'Supreme' Court. They would strike this action in any state suit, but are blatently biased, and bought and paid for in this case. Revolting. What happened offends every man and woman who died for this country, and everyone who has fought for free elections and honest government. Kudos to Bugliosi for taking on the challenge. He should have written more passionately, he writes clinically, and there should be far more spleen on this topic.

    Every American Should READ this Book!

    The last election has split the nation. Read this book, not written by a liberal or a conservative. When an Injustice happens to the Nation, then it should be investigated. ----- 'It doesn't matter.' has become the new mantra for the American people. It is time for 'IT DOES MATTER' and more importantly 'WHAT CAN I DO?'------------- What can YOU do? -- Read the book.
