35. Your missing the parts about what happens when Obama runs the table perfectly
That's what I presume, that we wins, and I say in the OP i'm more focused on what happens if every one of these suits lose.

(By the way, we know that the Supreme Court is pretty much unique in its willingness to terminate elections at the presidential level. We couldn't possibly be on more notice of that fact)

If you have so much legal knowledge, please share it. So far, nothing you say evidences that knowledge.

In case you're wondering, I'm not trying to get you or anybody else to worry. I'm instead pointing to a way to easily win the debate with the 50,000 or so people who, today, faxed or fedexed the US Supreme Court to grant the stay. Tomorrow is just the first of at least several such opportunities.

Remember, now, I'm joining you in thinking the ODDS are substantially in favor of not hearing the case. My OP still stands. I think the issue, misleading as it is, will get a hearing somewhere, in Congress or the Courts and both of those options are bad (more likely in Congress) because it's structured in such a way that second-guessing of the election is probable if not guaranteed. Why would any DU'er be opposed to upholding the will of the people? If you don't want to worry, go take a walk. That's not what's asked of you anyway.
