george w. bush has told his legal team they can appeal to united states supreme court. bush wants to stop all the handcounting of ballots in florida. the florida supreme court ruled that the manuel recount could be included in the final tally. with running mate dick cheney hospitalized with chest pains, bush spoke out about unfairness and lack of standards in the recounts.
BUSH: THE EFECT OF THE COURTS DECISION IS THAT VOTERS' VOTES WILL BE EVALUATED DIFFERENTLY IN DIFFERENT PARTS OF FLORIDA.
CROWD CHANTING....LET US SEE THE BALLOTS, LET US SEE THE BALLOTS!
outraged bush supporters protested a vote by miami-dade election officials to handcount only about ten thousand disputed ballots, a decision republicans said was an attempt to favor al gore.
"THE FIX IS IN. THE FIX IS IN." later in the day, county officals unexpectedly dropped the handcount entirely, citing an inability to make the sunday deadline. the gore camp said it would appeal the decision.
WILLIAM DALEY (OPTIONAL) WE HOPE THE COUNTS CONTINUE. THAT'S WHAT THE SUPREME COURT WANTED.

High winds are threatening to ground the giant balloons at tomorrow's Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.
Under guidelines adopted after a 1997 accident, the big balloons are grounded if the wind speed exceeds 23 miles-per-hour or the gusts are stronger than 34 miles-per-hour.
The National Weather Service predicts winds from the west at 15 to 20 miles per hour.
A decision on the balloons will be made in the morning. If the parade is one of the highlights of your holiday, you will enjoy a trip to our website of the day.
