"The biggest impact [I made] on the world was getting George W. Bush elected" president the first time, he says as plainly as if he were talking about the balmy weather outside. "I got him 2,000 votes in Florida." Bush won the state by 537 votes to beat Vice President Al Gore in the controversial election settled by the U.S. Supreme Court.

Pressed to explain how he personally delivered the winning margin, Siegel doesn't give specifics, only saying, "It was legal." But he acknowledges now that he has some remorse for helping Bush become president. "I feel bad for it now."
