Ohio Still Close, GW Dividing Again
The margin as of 8 a.m. is about 135,000 votes. There are about that many provisional ballots outstanding, some counties provisionals not reported, plus overseas abentees.
O.K.....I'm gonna take a deep breath. Here goes.
Yet again, we await some leadership from George W. Bush. If he were a leader, he would make a statement that he plans to wait to see what the certification in Ohio will be, that he asks Senator Kerry to do the same. That would unite the country.
Instead, I fully expect that he will arrogantly declare victory, tell Kerry to concede, and tell everyone to stop counting votes.
So much for being a uniter, not a divider. What a missed opportunity.
