Election 2004

Throwing Cold Water on Premature thoughts of an Obama Landslide

Okay, I am noticing some actually giddy glee creeping in. But I am still worried. I have two concerns.

One: Voter Suppression
I see voter registration stories such as Avahome's Nevada ACORN Raid info and Jamess Voter Register commentary, today's New York Times story AnnieK cited about HAVA not exactly Helping America Vote. On Jezebel, there's an interesting round up of stories on caging, suppression and voter obstruction that is going on at this very moment. Even over on MyLeftNutmeg, Aldon Hynes notes on the 7000 out 9000 voter registration cards that got tossed in Bridgeport, CT last week.
