    From the beginning, I have been unable to understand the reluctance to investigate this Presidential election - especially the reluctance on the part of Democrats.  (Even if I were a Republican, I would like to think that I had won fairly and squarely.)

    We voters deserved a "clean" election - we didn't get it.  

    I have read the reports from four different academic experts on statistics who make a very good case that it is highly improbable, and even impossible, to reconcile the exit poll data with the vote count.  

    The Ohio election deserves an investigation.

    What can we do about it?  We certainly don't cave in and accept Bush as our President.  As a first step, today we can email and/or phone one or two or more Senators and ask them to challenge the election at the Jan 6th joint session.
    As a second step, we can protest Bush's inauguration on Jan 20th.
    As a third step, we can continue to question and challenge that election throughout Bush's term.

    If we do not challenge this election, how many Democrats will just give up and not even bother going to the polls next time?  Would you blame those blacks (who stood in the rain for hours this time in order to vote) for dropping out next time?  And how many other Democrats will realize our system is broke and not show up in the future - if we don't fight now?
