Bush Is Certified Winner in Florida

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Florida's secretary of state certified George W. Bush the winner over Al Gore Sunday night in the state's near-deadlocked presidential vote -- but court challenges left in doubt which man will be the ultimate victor and 43rd president of the United States.

It was a certification that won't stick because it wasn't an ACCURATE accounting. Let's see if you Bush folks are still cheering on Inauguration day.

Sounds like she defied the order of the courts, AGAIN. The Secretary of State is not intended to be a position where political partisanship comes into play.
