I am sure most readers of this blog have read the numerous news stories about problems with voter registration lists, voting machines, etc. that are already cropping up across the country. CNN's Web site has a roundup of these problems and some specific examples that make it clear such worries could be well founded--especially the continual attempts by Republican operatives and secretaries of state to try to purge as many voters as they can from election rolls (particularly newly registered voters likely to go for Obama), not to mention more insidious techniques that seem to be in play.
So I am sure that I speak for tens of millions of people when I say that this time, unlike in 2000, we will not just sit by and allow the 2008 election to be stolen. If there is even a hint of such a thing in any state, we will fight it in the courts and if need be in the streets.
