38. The EAC as it is right now, with 2 Bush appointees, at least one comong from the Election Cneter,
will NOT work to improve the situation. If on the other hand, Obama were to choose 4 good people, or at least 2 good people, and two reasonable people, and put them in the EAC, we might have a chance at some sort of regulation. I think people need ot be aware. leading DUers to believe that the EAC will actually regulate ES&S is not positive. It is either naive or purposefully wrong.

Do you think an ex Goldman Sachs person is the person to regulate Goldman Sachs?
or that the BP scientist should be the only scientists allowed to check what is going on in the gulf?
that is exactly what you have with the EAC.

If you actaully WANT some change and a little tiny hint of regulation of ES&S, you need to get people in the EAC who will do that. Right now ES&S' trainees are regulating ES&S. That is why ES&S and the others created the Election Center. It is not by coincidence. The Kathy Nicklaus's and Blackwells (Ohio) did not come out of thin air. They are not coincidental. They were trained to do a job. not for the citizens.
