In point of fact, the real problem was in the absolutely stupid way that Karl Rove managed the campaign, which had already rallied the Gore vote--and discouraged the Bush vote--after the two conventions.

Agreed. I keep hearing about what a political genius Rove is supposed to be, but there have been many times I've been puzzled as to what he is thinking. One thing that really bothered me was how Bush basically took off the final two days before the election. Meanwhile, while Bush is taking it easy, you had Al Gore working his a*s off on a 48-hour whirlwind tour of several swing states. Rove got complacent at the end, and it nearly cost them.

This is not correct. GWB spoke to the same number of audiences as Gore. Your memory of those days is from the ABCCNNMSNBC interpretation of how hard each candidate was working. That and the cameras showing how much Gore was sweating!
