Vice President Al Gore stayed out of public view through most of the day, contemplating his options in the extraordinary political circumstances of the moment. Having apparently won a narrow victory in the popular vote for president yesterday, Gore is 10 electoral votes shy of the 270 needed. Unless a recount reverses the apparent result in Florida, Gore will fall short of the office he has pursued throughout his adult life. NPR's Don Gonyea is watching the Gore camp in Nashville, Tennessee and spoke with Robert Siegel.
