13. The crux of the matter is...
Not only is he a Dem like us - a shining blue ray of hope in a sea of hot reds - he isn't going along with the conventional - go along to get along and go ahead and concede already - crowd that doesn't want to cause waves among the election officials.

He is standing up for what is right - counting all the votes. Count not just the easy piles, but the ones too that are absentee, overseas and provisional. Each one of those votes represent a person's voice and in accordance with the strictures of democracy and the one person one vote idea, he is standing up for the importance of each and every vote.

We need more politicians like him. All of our politicians should follow his example. To do otherwise, like so many have, is to negate individual voices.

Count the votes. Count them correctly, and count every one. Go Charlie!
