From Bob Woodward’s new book, State of Denial:
“At 2:43 a.m., someone noted that Bush was ahead in the popular vote nationwide, prompting the President to sneer, “If the popular vote made it, I wouldn’t be here.”
The campaign was left to anxiously wait for a statement from Kenneth Blackwell, a former black power student leader who had morphed into Ohio’s gadfly Republican secretary of state.
“I’m the President of the United States,” Bush fumed, “waiting on a secretary of state who is a nut.”
Even Dubya thinks Blackwell is loony.
