This is the moment in the movie in which our protagonist, John F. Kerry, shows his mettle.

Either he pulls a Gore move and says "the system has spoken."

Or he fights.

Ohio, Florida, maybe other states, have results that are challengeable... Provisional ballots in Florida, Ohio, Iowa, and New Mexico... And Wisconsin, what?

He has the lawyers. He has the votes. He has the enemy which supressed their votes...

And does he have the balls or ovaries to give the fight?

That is the last question yet.

John: Charge the beach.

You have done it before.

Don't become a Gore, please.

And feel free to recommend this diary!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    but I also recommend folkbum's one below, which reminds us to start contributing to the Kerry legal defense fund.

  •  Sad to see (none)
    so many of you accept FoxNew's calling that Ohio is Bush's. Have you learned nothing from 2000? They're media hacks! And they all want to beat the other to guess!

    However it turns out, I think it'd be a shame to give up before all the ballots have been counted. We may lose, we may win. But we deserve to allow every American to express his or her voice.

    Please, my man Kerry- do NOT concede til those Florida absentee ballots are counted and the Ohio votes are reported.

  •  NO CONCESSION, NO APOLOGIES. (none)
    The greater good requires it.

    PROPS for CNN for doing the right thing and refusing to call it.  Seems like common sense to me, but these days it's heroic.

    ever ... even if the SoS in each state declares it

    And, if Greg Palast is right about voter suppression (and I think we all think he is) ... then this time, when the CBC calls for just ONE Senator, I damn well better see over 40 Democrats stand up for them.
