CNN has confirmed that there will be a recount in Ohio.
Now be careful all you LIBS. I'd advise you to 'hold your water' until it is completed.

The Libertarian Party (14,000 votes for President in Ohio) and the Green Party (24 votes) combined their efforts to force the recount. Under Ohio law, they have to pay for the recount @ $10 per precinct.

Good to see you here again, Wayne.

Hope all is well for you and yours.

Any big retirement/boat plans in the works? Have you now moved away from that beautiful boatshop?

You gotta wonder how Ohio law could allow candidates who got almost no votes to force a recount. No matter the outcome of the recount, they have no chance. A waste of time that should be corrected in Ohio law.

Well Jessie Jackson------you know the man with good old fashioned 'family values'. The man who had his own TV show until the network discovered he actually had had 'a bit on the side' for years and then fired him. The man who before getting his ass kicked out of his own house went on TV and preached against exactly what he himself was doing, said on Crossfire that only 'select' voter precints should be counted in Ohio. Can you say "Al Gore in Florida"?

The Democrats also have to raise a min..of 700,000 dollars by Friday...note down payment.
Otherwise it will be selected counties and not the entire state...
The elections are over...even in Washington State.
Let it rest...work on 2008...

Brian...On the news yesterday..It mentioned the Demorcratic Party...My mistake was it is in Washington...Not Ohio.
Sorry!

That's money the Democrats can voluntarily give to Ohio because we're needing a new coach in Cleveland.

And a new QB, or at least a rib transplant.
