     Q    Mr. President, are you disappointed at the lack of consensus on
free trade at APEC?

     THE PRESIDENT:  I might have more to say about that before we go.
Don't be too discouraged.

     Q    How about the Florida court ruling, sir?

     THE PRESIDENT:  I'm over here, so I'm not sure what it means.  It's
obviously going to have to be interpreted now, since the two sides have a
different reading on it.

     Q    How about the Secretary of State denying the hand recount?

     THE PRESIDENT:  I'm over here doing this work; I don't think I should
get involved in that.

     The American people deserve a full and fair count .  And I hope the
process will produce it, and they're over there debating it in the
appropriate way.  I shouldn't be involved in that.

     Q    Should Gore and Bush meet?

     THE PRESIDENT:  What?

     Q    Should Gore and Bush meet?

     THE PRESIDENT:  I don't think I should be involved in that.
