Wouldn't that be more in line with an Obama declaration of martial law? I mean rioting in just Florida wouldn't be enough reason, right?
I say this because it makes the most sense IF a suspesion/cancellation of elections is what Obama wants (and I think that's EXACTLY what he wants).
I think a suspension or cancellation of the November elections due to mass riots is a bit of a stretch. Seems to me that this is more of a "get out the vote" effort that the Dems know would have some "acceptable" collateral damage (i.e. a few lives lost).
