Anyone think laws suits will happen over the vote in California?
I think regardless of what happens in the vote tommorrow, law suits will happen to challenge the outcome.

We have so many possibilities here. A close vote on the recall, a close vote between Bustamante and Arnold, butterfly ballots, kinks in the law, criminal charges against Arnold, campaign contributions. I am sure I am forgetting any number of other possible chances of a law suit.

What do you guys think? Another Florida maybe baking in the oven?

2. I said as much to my g/f earlier tonight...
... unless it's a complete blowout, this thing is going to be decided in the courts.

4. Great quote about this in artcle from CNN:
http://www.cnn.com/2003/ALLPOLITICS/10/06/next/index.ht...

With the specter of Florida 2000 fresh in their minds, both political parties are preparing for post-election legal wrangling that could throw the election back into court and leave Gov. Gray Davis, a Democrat, in office into mid-November, whether he survives the recall or not.

"Absolutely," state Democratic Party spokesman Bob Mulholland recently told the Modesto Bee newspaper, when asked about the party's preparations for a national drive to raise $100,000 for possible legal challenges.

"We're going to do everything that's legal to have the votes counted in California, and we're putting the Republicans on notice that we're prepared for their goon tactics this time."

"Goon tactics" -- I love it!
