The constitution says that the new president will be the man who receives a majority
of electors OFFICIALLY APPOINTED by December 18. There are 538 electoral votes in
total and Gore doesn't have a majority of them, but not counting Florida's 25 electoral
votes there are only 513 and Gore does have a majority of those. All Gore has to do is
drag things out with lawsuits in the courts until December 18 and then nobody would get
Florida's 25 vote and Gore would be president.
