A new HBO film chronicles the dramatic battle for the presidency between George W. Bush and Al Gore. Recount depicts five weeks of ballot recounting in Florida through dramatic recreations and news footage from the 2000 election.

Mitchell Berger, senior adviser to the Gore-Lieberman campaign, and Ben Ginsberg, National Counsel to the Bush-Cheney campaign, are both portrayed in the film. They weigh in on the 2000 presidential election and the accuracy of Recount.
