John Benjamin Martin,
Ben Ginsberg states that Bill Daley's father "stole it for JFK," referring to the belief that Chicago mayor Richard Daley rigged the vote in Illinois in 1960. Kennedy would have still won the electoral college without Illinois. See more »
Listen, Katherine. Most people go through their lives never having a chance to make a difference. And those that are lucky enough to have that chance don't recognize it when it comes. They think it's down the road, or that it's going to be next year or the year after that. But if you're a publical official wanting to make history then today is your lucky day, darling. You're about to pick the leader of the free world.
Don't you worry, Mac. It's going to take a lot more than David Letterman ...

This movie was totally unknown to me when I by coincidence discovered it because it aired on TV. (It's a TV movie after all). I think it deserves to be more well-known among people. American politics has always been of interest to me, and this was highly entertaining. I remember the mess, arguing and total chaos that was the Presidential election Florida recount, but I couldn't remember all the details. This movie takes you through everything that happened in a way that you don't want to stop watching. It's really entertaining, sometimes I think it's borders to comedy, but that's not a problem. In fact, the whole situation in 2000 was almost a comedy in itself. Before I watched this, I feared that it would have the typical liberal viewpoint that so many political movies have thus making them hard to watch. Luckily, I felt that it was quite neutral all the way through and managed to show the situation from both sides. That's a big plus. Also, the acting is great in this movie.
