9. Yeah. It had better be big.
And by big I mean unshakable proof that the election was stolen.

12. If Kerry doesn't come out now with guns blazing...
I'll lose all respect for him. He needs to take charge and leave no ambiguity about where he stands on the recount/fraud issue and what he supports. He'll need support in areas after finally coming out.

13. Ok but don't turn all the rage inward
at the Democrats. The GOP has "arranged" all of this, so we have darn few options left.
What remedies, for example, do we really have, even if Congress contests the OH Electors?
It's not the Dems fault--it's the GOP. They're the ones who are rigging things, and covering things up.
To an extent, too, it's "the system". The GOP has managed to gradually exploit the system to get where they are.
Control of Congress
Control of Supreme Court
Control of White House (at least, right now)
More or less control of most of the media (in effect)
not to mention, plenty of dough to work with.
If the Ohio Electors are contested, does that really mean anything except they might have to proceed with counting the other 49 states' Electoral votes, and just leave Ohio out?
Then Bush would have 266 Electoral votes, Kerry 252 (or maybe 257 if NM turns around), while Ohio would be listed forever in history as "not counted in Presidential election of 2004".
Any attorneys present?
Is this really what's going to happen?
Seems like a p-poor "remedy", if so.
Or, if OH is not counted, would this open the door to a new scandal about the election, a w-gate type thing? Or is that unrealistic, given GOP control of Congress?

3. Ya know, I was just thinking
I think we're gonna be disappointed no matter what happens... can anything really live up to all this suspense?

I don't want another statement, or another letter from a lawyer, or another lawsuit, I want to see him in front of a camera making a statement HIMSELF. Oh please, santa it's all I want for christmas.

4. I've been thinking the same thing.
Unfortunately suspense just builds my hopes up for something truly insightful or with real impact. Despite knowing deep down that is highly unlikely.

5. Yes, a statement himself would be great
Especially if it includes UN-conceding!

11. I hope you are right, would help to pay lawyers & recount volunteers

so many expenses related to recounts, need funds for NM, and other states like Nevada. I hope this is all coming together and many thanks to all those who believed our Democracy is worth protecting, I love them all, they are my heros.

14. ANY statement will be a big deal....
because until now the only statement has been complete silence. If he makes a statement about the election now, it will "shock and awe" everyone out there who thought the election was over. The media will have to start reporting it.
