Actually, according to the 12th Amendment, if no President is selected by
March 4, the Vice-President is sworn in. Its probably not possible for
Gore to drag it out *that* long, though. If Florida remains undecided,
the electoral college will meet eventually anyhow, and, with no majority,
turn it over to the House of Representatives. Bush would win that (unless
a handful of Republicans are suicidal).
