Popular vote

At this point, 10:40 PST, Johnny Cambodia has a mathmatical chance of winning and, of course, may try to litigate his way into the White House. But, critically, this is not even close as a referendum on Bush's administration. He will win the popular vote by 3% and about 3 million votes.

Last time out, gore won the popular vote, though not by nearly as much. If the Kerry camp decides to contest the election, they will be starting from the moral low ground of having to argue that the popular vote of the people should be overturned. I don't like their chances.

A wise man or a wise party would call it a night if Bush hits 270 and get ready to fight the next battle.
