a lot of fuss is

a lot of fuss is being made about who should or should not be the next President of the United States. But so far I have not seen anybody say this (which seems obvious to me): with such a close finish in the election, and such a dubious and contentious conclusion to the voting, whoever is finally appointed to the office of President by the electoral college is going to be so utterly discredited in the eyes of the majority of voters (since neither candidate will have gained a majority of the popular vote) that their position will almost be untenable. This will be particularly true for Al Gore should he be declared the final winner, as he will have to deal with a Republican majority in Congress.
My suggestion (for what it is worth) – declare the vote in Florida void, and hold a new ballot.
