5-4 Supreme Court drama clears way for Bush presidency, Gore concession

WASHINGTON (BP)--George W. Bush seems headed for the White House Dec. 13 as its 43rd occupant after Al Gore lost his case before the U.S. Supreme Court the night before. Gore will withdraw from the presidential race, according to high-ranking aides to the vice president.

The move comes hours after the nation's highest court all but assured Bush the presidency Dec. 12 by reversing, in a 5-4 vote, a Florida Supreme Court decision that had ordered a recount of tens of thousands of disputed ballots.
