I'm sure that will be a topic tonight on DU. They'll start a petition drive to get Kerry to reconsider.

Dan Rather is probably still blathering about "alternatives paths to victory for John Kerry".

I can't believe the networks actually refused to call Ohio that night with the exception of Fox and NBC. They all had the same data and they knew damn well it was over.

The vote is certified, but the ones calling for a recount are still certifiable.

Well... be fair, though. He's basing this on this startling, decades-old "typewritten" memo he's happened to uncover, just recently... :)

Blackwell, a Republican, oversaw the election process while serving as one of several statewide GOP leaders who co-chaired Bush's campaign. The 2000 Florida recount was also administered by a Republican secretary of state, Katherine Harris, who is now a member of Congress.

Of course, no matter what, CNN managed to insert some 'important information' regarding who handled the 'problematic' elections.

I'm sure the DU folks are demanding a recount in the states Kerry won over Bush by a smaller margin than Bush won Ohio by. /sarcasm

Well if they did their exit polling in Austin it maybe too close to call by their models.

"The 2000 Florida recount was also administered by a Republican secretary of state, Katherine Harris, who is now a member of Congress."



What POSSIBLE reason could there be for including this tidbit of info- other than outright liberal bias? IF- Ohio had been like Florida in the closeness...the recount disaster etc...then it would have been germaine to the article.

God I detest the media.

No different than Al Gore only wanting to count votes in Democratic counties back in 2000. Funny what happened in Florida the last two times they voted statewide for a Bush. Two big Bush victories!!
