    I wonder if they'll spend more $ from the times the polls close on lawyers, then they did on the campaigns?

    Id love to know how Kerry is going to challenge a landslide victory for Bush. Maybe if it was close but it wont be.

    I'd like to think you're right. If that is going to be the case, they better do a better job of getting out the message, like the Safire piece this morning.

    I'm going to be very interested in what kind of coverage this gets. My hope is lots!!!! Do people REALLY want to go through that crap on even a larger scale?? A vote for the only person who has a chance at a landslide could possibly prevent it .

    now we really know why he chose Edwards as a running mate. He needs the connections into trial lawyers and he needs somebody, such as Edwards, to be the point man during his legal battle. It is a sad shape the Democrats have put our political system in. I blame them as they are the constructors of the party of the "needy" that use all the dirty tricks they can to win as winning is all they care about. It all goes hand in hand with their victimization mentality and their personal insecurities that run their daily lives.

    I would hope no candidate would have the balls to put the country through that fiasco again. I fear that same mess thought if it is a close election.Can you imagine waiting again to find out who is President? I don't see many states being that close. Let's just hope they have their system straight down there in Florida. The Dems down there were pretty damn determined,no matter what the real vote count was.

    Unless its an overwhelming defeat (not as likely to happen as some would think) you can rest assured that there will be challenges. It was inevitable, given the bipolar two party system that we have. You will see little caring for what they put the nation through so long as they (meaning both parties) see a chance for furthering their political agenda.

    I do agree,DK. Although I wonder why what happened in 2000 had not happened before? Just seems strange,unless there is something I don't know about.

    florida was bound to be contested because the states governor is brother to one of the candidates. Top that off with the inuendo of revised voters lists and the closeness of the outcome......and there you have it.
