David Limbaugh | November 18, 2000

I think we better take a deep breath before trying to fashion legislative panaceas for perceived problems with our electoral system. The uncertainty in the Florida election result is not due to a flawed system, but fallen humanity.

Robert Novak | November 18, 2000

U.S. District Judge Donald M. Middlebrooks, who rejected the Bush campaign's call for an injunction against manual counts of Florida ballots, was a modest but consistent contributor to Democratic candidates -- including Al Gore -- prior to going on the federal bench in 1997.

Ann Coulter | November 17, 2000

In a fast-breaking story like the Democrats' attempt to steal a presidential election, it can be hard to keep up with the barrage of lies.

Thomas Sowell | November 17, 2000

It was only a few words among the millions that have been spewed out through the media about the presidential election, but they were among the weightiest -- and most chilling -- of these words.

Michelle Malkin | November 17, 2000

"When pigs fly. When hell freezes over. When the cow jumps over the moon. N-O. No, no, no! End of discussion."

Brent Bozell | November 17, 2000

Give credit to Michael Kinsley and his staff at the liberal Web site Slate.com. The day before the election, almost the entire staff declared which presidential candidate they would be voting for and why.

Mona Charen | November 17, 2000

In "Man of La Mancha," there's a wonderful fugue in which several of the "knight's" relatives give their self-interested but prettified reasons for wanting their uncle, brother, cousin committed to an insane asylum.

Oliver North | November 17, 2000

The drama of the 2000 presidential election reminds us that it's time someone expressed gratitude to the dedicated public servants who have done so much to educate our children about the U.S. Constitution.

Maggie Gallagher | November 17, 2000

I asked a friend recently what the mood was in one Bush stronghold. "Gloomy and combative," he told me.

Thomas Sowell | November 16, 2000

The same ugly tactics that worked for the Clinton administration during impeachment are now being used by Al Gore in a last desperate effort to capture Florida and the presidency.

Michelle Malkin | November 16, 2000

TV journalism means never having to be truly sorry. You would think that after last Tuesday's election coverage fiasco, the broadcast networks might show a smidgen of humility.

Brent Bozell | November 16, 2000

In forging a well-deserved reputation as perhaps the most sex-driven broadcast network, Fox has been subjected to frequent whackings from television critics and cold shoulders from the industry elite.

Larry Elder | November 16, 2000

"The Election Crisis" screamed the New York Times full-page ad. "The outcome of last Tuesday's election," began the ad, "is threatening to produce a constitutional crisis.

Debra J. Saunders | November 16, 2000

The most craven man wins. That's why it was Dubya's turn to look bad this week. After chastising Team Gore for trying to settle the election in court, Bush had his own lawyers in court yesterday trying to prevent a hand count of votes in four Democratic counties in Florida.

Emmett Tyrrell | November 16, 2000

With the third successive count of Florida's presidential vote still leaving George W. Bush ahead of Al Gore, one stupendous fact towers above the lawyers' wrangling.

Robert Novak | November 16, 2000

The definitive signal that the search to identify the next president had been handed over to the lawyers came Tuesday in Tallahassee when former Secretary of State Warren Christopher was suddenly joined in front of television cameras by an addition to Al Gore's team.

William F. Buckley | November 16, 2000

Whatever happens down Florida way, nothing will change the central finding, which is that the voting public is tied on the question: Republicans vs. Democrats.

Walter E. Williams | November 15, 2000

Here are just a few of the facts: One study asked middle-class black, white and Asian high school students what was the lowest grade their parents would tolerate their bringing home? Asian students replied A-minus.

David Limbaugh | November 15, 2000

Why am I shocked that Al Gore's calculated effort to divide this nation along racial, ethnic, gender, social and economic lines for political gain has persisted beyond the election?

Phyllis Schlafly | November 15, 2000

Is your schoolchild watching too much television? Eating too many junk foods and drinks instead of what's healthy? Nagging you to buy expensive sneakers? Too easily swayed by advertising? If so, why are the schools encouraging all those things?

Bruce Bartlett | November 15, 2000

The Gore campaign is complaining about George W. Bush's effort to get a transition operation going, saying it is presumptuous of him to act like he will be president before victory is assured.

Jack Kemp | November 15, 2000

As Prime Minister Winston Churchill said, "Democracy is the worst form of government except for all those others that have been tried." The near tie in the 2000 election is giving the American people a civics lesson unprecedented in our lifetime.

Mona Charen | November 14, 2000

In an ideal world, here is how things would have unfolded after the election deadlock of Nov. 7:

Linda Chavez | November 14, 2000

Al Gore faced a true test of character on Election Night when the final vote tally in Florida showed him narrowly losing to George W. Bush.

Bill Murchison | November 14, 2000

Let me attempt to say this as dis-tinct-ly as possible, over the vote-counting, vote-disputing hubbub: Democracy depends on ... morality.

Jacob Sullum | November 14, 2000

In addition to determining the next president, the Florida recount has brought attention to a hazard that has been overlooked for too long: hanging chads.

Ann Coulter | November 13, 2000

I have a sick, sinking feeling. It's impeachment all over again. But this time it's about the results of a presidential election. Like President Clinton, Al Gore is willing to precipitate a constitutional crisis to hold on to power.

Debra J. Saunders | November 13, 2000

The election is over, now it's time for the Saunders election awards. The Liberal Media Bias Award goes to CNN.

Maggie Gallagher | November 13, 2000

For me, like the rest of America, election night was a wild ride. The polls, the pundits, Rush Limbaugh, the news anchors and the candidates were all wrong: The election wasn't just close.

Robert Novak | November 13, 2000

William M. Daley, the astute chairman of Al Gore's presidential campaign, markedly softened his tone Friday. No longer was this lifelong veteran of Chicago's political wars threatening legal action.

William F. Buckley | November 13, 2000

Here is the beginning of wisdom on the electoral jam.

Bruce Bartlett | November 13, 2000

There's an old saying: Be careful what you wish for, you might just get it. Financial markets clearly favor political gridlock.

John Leo | November 13, 2000

Jeff Greenfield, the CNN analyst, has been warning about the lack of "dispassion" in political commentary on the Florida presidential vote. He is putting it mildly.
