  •  Her segment on voting reform.. (6+ / 0-)

    was excellent.  Hope she continues to air the Obama clip on fixing the voting problems and keeps it in the spotlight - might help get something done.  Love the idea of an independent agency hired by the fed to admin a national election for president and congress, simple ballot, hopefully paper based - I'm an electrical engineer and computer savy, ANY computer is vulnerable to vote manipulation, a piece of paper with a box filled in is forever.

      I'm for federal oversight and standards on national elections, as well as standardized voting with paper backup and verification.

      While we're at it, it should be a National Holiday. I'd be okay with changing national elections to Veteran's day or even Independence day (or President's day).
