  •  Two or three recounts is the possibility I fear (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    Having Florida, Colorado and/or Virginia go through a protracted recount of "too close to call" balloting while the Congress does a lame duck session is the result I fear most.  At least as far as anything like an orderly resolution of critical tax and spending fiscal issues is important to capital markets and civic peace.

    Having recounts happening will freeze any progress on those budget fights, and will only inflame the already overheated and vitriolic rhetoric -- it could really make this an ugly holiday season -- and leave a lingering stench of cordite over the first weeks of the next term.

    We need a decisive victory. Get out that vote!
