43* When Gore Beat BushTions Greenfield takes readers deep inside the Gore administration and reveals high level meetings top secret programs and ego fueled battles that forever altered the global landscape And in Greenfield’s hauntingly plausible parallel universe the law of unintended conseuences has a dramatic effect on the fate of the United StatesIt’s the 'butterfly effect' writes Greenfield where one dead butterfly millions of years ago leads to a contemporary world immeasurably coarse less kind It's the notion of the old nursery rhyme 'For want of a nail the kingdom was lost'. I initially picked this up because I couldn't think of anything else to read and when that happens I try to pick up Kindle singles since I know I will be done with them rather uickly I read this while on an airplane and that is exactly what this was an airplane book longform magazine article A decent but not great look into the fantasy of what would have happened had Al Gore defeated George W Bush in the 2000 Presidential Election The interesting thing to me was just how it read could definitely have plausibly happened but I felt like a few too many guesses were made Of course this is fiction and no one knows what would have occurred But I still thought the best part of this was how he tied in the Elian Gonzalez thing into whether or not Gore was elected and stayed away from the Florida vote count

I always enjoy a little alternate history to keep my mind fresh and wondering 'what if' Greenfield did a good job in this novella examining one of the great 'what if' tales of the 21st century but did not take the usual route to do so He tackled the 2000 US Presidential Election less from the hanging chad perspective and from an outright victory for Gore This does certainly open up many possibilities ones that had not crossed my mind at the time or even until I read them on the page I thoroughly enjoyed his alternate happening possibilities based in factual accounts and 'could be' happenings Well woven for sureWhile one can only go so far I could see this novella being a full fledged book though the threads of history would surely unravel to the point that we as readers may not recognise things that continue on A two year snapshot in this alternate world is enough to show just how maligned things could have been and how someone other than Dubya could have steered the US into another disastrous period of their historyWell done Mr Greenfield I have some of your other work and may entertain myself with it in the near future
