  •  My wife told me last night (none)
    when I got home that Kerry ( or a spokesman for Kerry )issued a statement yesterday to the effect of "We lost, give it up"
    in response to all the internet hubub.

    I haven't been able to find anything on this newswise, but that's no surprise ( lack of coverage )

    Soes anyone know if this is true??

    •  not true according to Olbermann (none)
      LAst night he reported that the Kerry people have lawyers in Ohio looking into things. They are *not claiming to be looking for ways to overturn the election, which only seems reasonable at this point.
      •  why should Kerry do the dirty work (none)
        when the 3rd parties will?  especially given the current political climate that would not accept this recount if Kerry called for it.

        With the 3rd parties doing it, we have a much better chance of the public viewing it as a recount and not a political move.

        •  Yes and it's a win win (none)
          for the third parties and the DEMS
          I'm now very impressed by the integrity the
          Greens and Libs and *Reform party are showing regarding preserving democracy.
          Makes me feel good knowing the entire system isn't yet corrupted.

          •  This could/should be great exposure (none)
            for the Libertarian party as well as the Greens.

            It is definitely in the best interest of the Libertarians, who couldn't get the media to as much as give Badnarik a sniff, to take the spot light.  I truly belive that this is great for democracy.
