Florida Recount NPR's Mara Liasson reports on the results of a media consortium's review of uncounted ballots from last year's presidential contest in Florida. The review was conducted because last year's ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court to halt the recount left many Al Gore partisans fuming. While different scenarios show different results, the conclusion is that had the recount been allowed to continue, or had the Gore forces been allowed to proceed with their strategy of selected county recounts, George W. Bush still would have won.
