Good Morning, I'm Kimberly McBroom.
The U-S Supreme Court is taking a second--and perhaps last-- look at the ongoing Presidential election.
George W- Bush is asking the high court to overturn Florida's state supreme court decision calling for recounts of disputed ballots.
Meanwhile, people are camped outside the U-S Supreme Court, braving the cold weather.
They're hoping to get a seat for today's oral arguments.
Jennifer Jones has an update for us now from Washington, DCTERMS.
