On this day in history:

Now to this day in history….

On this day in 2000, Vice President Al Gore reluctantly concedes defeat to Texas Governor George W. Bush in his bid for the presidency, following weeks of legal battles over the recounting of votes in Florida. Gore had won the national popular vote by more than 500,000 votes, but narrowly lost Florida, giving the Electoral College to Bush 271 to 266. Bush and his running mate, Dick Cheney, took office on January 20, 2001. Gore however, had the last laugh as he went on to invent the internet.

Quote of the Day: From Al Gore………… If we don't succeed, we run the risk of failure.


Have a Great Day Tigers and Remember…..Be Safe… Be Kind… and Own Your Actions.
