Exactly. Which is why in all the hubba bubba about OH, you will never hear Jesse Jackson, the DU tinfoil moonbats and their amen corner in the legacy media mention how much larger Bush's margin of victory could have been. And all the attention now lavished on OH would have been a footnote in the history books.
Speaking of meaninless footnotes, Bush won a higher percentage of the popular vote than any Democrat since 1840, with the exception of LBJ, FDR, and Samuel Tilden. That's right. Samuel Tilden in 1876 got a higher percentage of the popular vote than Bill Clinton, Jimmy Carter, John F Kennedy, Harry Truman, Woodrow Wilson, Grover Cleveland, James Buchanan, or Franklin Pierce.
The burning question is, of course, did Samuel Tilden have a mandate?
