Political sour grapes. She knows it won't change the outcome.

To use a familiar phrase, shouldn't we get back to the business of running the country?

This won't change anything, so why are they doing it? It seems like a complete waste.

At this point I think it's more about future elections.

Yes. I think a lot of people are missing this point.

Elections are not a football game. There's more to it than simply who won and who lost.

The U S election process is broken
it is an embarrassment-

sure, if your guy wins its fine,
so much for integrity and values

a two hour delay won't change outcome

but every bit of light shone
should help

Now, we are trying to measure the balance of power by the "quality" of the win.

This has nothing to do with fixing the process, only making a claim on this new form of power.

I think elections should be as honest and as fair as we can make them, I think that's the point

I got this in an e-mail from True Majority-you can go to their site if you want to send an e-mail to your Senator

"The whole world now knows what went on in Ohio and other states on Election Day, and we simply can't let it happen anymore.

We know that many Americans in inner cities were prevented from voting by eight-hour lines. We know that local officials changed the rules on which votes they counted. We know that technicians from computerized voting companies were allowed to tamper with balloting machines unsupervised.

Elections with those sorts of problems are not honest.

The winners of these tainted elections assert that their outcomes didn’t depend on the fraud. But in sports, referees don’t wait until the outcome of the game is in jeopardy before calling penalties and enforcing the rules. Nowhere in the Constitution does it describe some acceptable level of denying Americans their votes. When Congress meets this Thursday, January 6, we’ll have a good opportunity to make it clear that Americans want every vote counted, period.

That same Constitution also directs Congress to ratify the result of the presidential election in order to make it official. This Thursday, Representative John Conyers (D-Michigan) plans to challenge the voting tally from his state, and if even one senator joins him, Congress will be compelled to debate the widespread problems that have been exposed. This Congress isn’t going to overturn the election, but it would be forced into a debate that would serve as a national teach-in on voting rights, computer voting that can’t be audited and the continued suppression of minority votes. In short — Honest Elections or not? "

Well put. Thanks.

If Ohio election officials, especially SOS Blackwell, had shown a bit more integrity during the last two months, the outcome would almost certainly be the same but we wouldn't be at this point today. These people need to be held accountable for their unethical (and clearly illegal in some cases) actions, and if this is what it takes, so be it.
