Kerry building legal network for vote fights!
indful of the election problems in Florida four years ago, aides to Senator John Kerry, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, say his campaign is putting together a far more intricate set of legal safeguards than any presidential candidate before him to monitor the election.

Aides to Mr. Kerry say the campaign is taking the unusual step of setting up a nationwide legal network under its own umbrella, rather than relying, as in the past, on lawyers associated with state Democratic parties. The aides said they were recruiting people based on their skills as litigators and election lawyers, rather than rewarding political connections or big donors

This site requires a registration, but it's FREE. The article is worth reading. Kerry is setting up a netword of lawyers to make sure, before & after the voting, that everything is done right and every vote is counted!

GO KERRY/EDWARDS!!!!!

1. Thank God. Kerry's strategizing like this is a war...
...because it is one.

Did you read Paul Krugman's latest on the subject? He referred to the opening pages of Henry Kissinger's doctoral dissertation, where he describes the mindset of a population beset by revolutionaries. Ordinary people living their ordinary lives simply can't see it, but the revolutionaries are relentless and there is no rational discussion with them... People who are aware and speak out are called alarmists...and the revolutionaries just keep on doing what they are doing. Krugman IS talking about us and the Neocons. (Sorry I don't have the link just now, but a friend forwarded it to me recently and it's no doubt on the Krugman website.)

Anything that the Kerry-Edwards forces can do to prepare for the s**t massively hitting the fan between now and December will only be intelligent planning.
