Any Cal dems interested in keeping Bush off 04 ballot
Advertisements [?]
California law requires that both party Presidential nominees be submitted by late August 04, whereas Bush won't be nominated till early Sept so he can wrap himself in 9/11 "celebrations" as if that won't backfire. The democratic Secretary of State, Kevin Shelly, plans to "waive" that requirement.

I've been of a mixed mind about this. Of course Bush is going to be the nominee, unless he isn't. We could challenge this in court as concerned citizens. If we file in San Francisco, we could pull a good judge and have a decent chance. We would need to raise about $25,000 minimum for legal fees (and no, I'm not looking to be the lawyer on it).
