When the ballots are all counted, the election will be over. That is how democracy works. People vote and the ballots are counted. The person with the most votes wins. The world will not come to an end if the time is taken to count the ballots. Doing otherwise, if the results of the election are in any doubt, would be a betrayal of those whose votes were not counted. Some patience and respect for the process is required.

If Mr. Kerry chooses not to accept the election results, no one is going to give any attention to the Democrat campaigns going forward. This will pave the way for a series of neocon activists on a level the left has nerver seen.

The arrogance of the Democrats is overwhelming. They can't seem to get their egos to fit back in their heads after 8 years of cigar smoking euphoria during the Clinton administration. Certainly, they must be able to relate better to the American people than the swaggering Texan they despise. However, when you look at the polling results, Kerry does not stand a chance in 80& of the precincts that are polled. He gets all of his support from urban centers with high populations. Bush would continue to build a big enough lead in all of the smaller communities throughout an entire state and watch the lead shrink back as the polls from the major cities were counted.

To have the Democrats send 1000 lawyers into Ohio to get provisional voters back on track is fine with me. I think it is distateful, just like giving out cigarettes and booze to bumbs to get them to vote. However, the provisional and absentee ballots remaining in Ohio need to be counted before a legal precedent blocks up the polling process in the court system. Florida clearly showed that the provisional votes were consistent with the overall voting pattern of the state. No significant statistical deviations.
