I'm too young to have any memory of the 2000 election - besides being British, my age at that point was still counted in months - however this comment drove home (for perhaps the first time) how much recent world history hinges on the smallest things. It's a 'for the want of a nail' scenario of the purest form but one that played out on the very highest of stages. Crazy shit happens, indeed.
