A question
Will the Democrats now be able and willing to give the US an election process where one can trust that the votes are counted accurately?

1. I think so - or rather, they better
I'm not sure they can ignore the groundswell/grassroots kind of thing which has happened because of the internet, blogs, etc.

If it helps, I saw on Obama's site that the first thing he wants to do is to make the government more transparent and less crony-riddled. A damn good start.

4. No. By definition, officeholders are people who have won elections.
If it was by 52/48, they could give a rat's ass that the real numbers might have been 54/46. And if the real numbers were actually 49/51 and they lost, they REALLY don't want to know.

Therefore citizens just have to keep pushing at them until they do something.
