4. Won't make a difference to people's reactions
If these observers were to say everything was legit and nothing came up to raise suspicions and Bush won regardless, this board would say that the observers were bought off, stooges of the Bush empire, or threatened to keep their mouths shut.

Likewise, if Kerry wins this time around you'll have most of FR making the same claims about the observers.

Sorry but I'm cynical enough after regularly reading DU and FR to believe there will never be another election where the losing side (whether it be D or R) ever accepts defeat graciously even in the case of significant margins of victory outside of the margin of error.
