"The fact that he appeared to be invisible shortly after the election, showing no opposition to the obvious cases of election abuse, particularly in Ohio justified my opinion that he wasn't too active. If anything, my remark showed considerable restraint. Many of us were very disappointed by what seemed to be his unwillingness to fight for the Democratic cause."

OK, maybe I'll do some homework for you. Here are some links that prove without a doubt that you have need to read and listen to. Here are some links to what Kerry (and Edwards) have been doing since the Election. You can find more related speeches, proposals and other issues related to the Election and MANY other issues here:

Conyers Proud of Kerry/Edwards for Staying Involved in Voter Fraud Issue

Maybe you didn't read this from John Conyers:

"Fighting for Every Voter"

A few more words about an issue that is of the utmost importance to me.

As political candidates, we spend considerable time and effort every election cycle fighting for votes. After the election, whether won or lost, many candidates leave the irregularities of the election behind. But we owe the voters more than that. When voters are disenfrachised, we owe it to them to seek justice and expose the truth. That is why I have been so proud of the Kerry-Edwards campaign's ongoing involvement in the investigation and litigation of what went wrong in Ohio. I wrote to the candidates recently to ask that they continue to be involved in this important endeavor.

This is not about the past. It is about figuring out what went wrong and why -- and then getting the next election right, not for the Democratic Party, but for all of the voters."
