56. It's worth taking a closer look.
The integrity of our elections is more important than who emerges as the Democratic candidate. This is a perfect opportunity to look at the voting system in New Hampshire, if all involved parties agree to do so. Given that all involved parties have expressed some doubts in the machines being used there, I see no reason why they would not do so, beyond placing the desire to win above the desire to have free and fair elections. Our friends over in the GOP are very familiar with that idea, I hope we are better than that which we claim to be fighting against.

The information we have to date doesn't indicate that there is a problem, but it does seem to indicate that a problem similar to ones we have encountered in previous years may exist. That's worth looking at. IF HRC won, that's grand. She's a worthy candidate. But her winning is inconsequential when compared to the integrity of our elections.
