35. I think that whoever has the best election lawyers will win...
Edited on Sat Oct-23-04 02:23 AM by claudiajean
...and that truly seems to be shaping up to be Kerry. The American Trial Lawyers Association (of which I'm also a member) has a massive program put together to have qualified attorneys trained by election law experts on the ground in every state, with especially strong presence in swing states. (I know, because I'm one of the trainers.)

The race is boiling down to a strong echo of 2000: the race will come down to a few swing states with tight races.

We'll see a repeat of what happened in Florida (I mean the litigation, not necessarily the outcome), but on a much more sophisticated level. Voter intent ballots will be challenged, voter supression campaigns will be challenged, every possible kind of election malfeasance and misfeasance will be scrutinized. It will all come down to which side can keep the most of their side's questionable ballots in the count.

And I think that will be the Democrats, with the aid of the trial lawyers.

(edited for spelling. must. sleep. now.)
