My fiance and I are actually watching the reports on TV (and on the web) here in Sweden. But as a new Florida voter (I was registered in CA before moving to FL), it's nice to see that my vote might actually matter. Assuming that my absentee ballot actually gets COUNTED, of course! :)
My vote was for Kerry, btw. Why? I liked the idea of remaking the middle east, Iraq first... but the execution of the plan was horrible. And while problems are inevitable, an inability by the Chief Executive to hold anyone accountable for the errors, misjudgements, and just plain fark-ups shows to me a basic character flaw: The inability to admit a mistake.
If nobody below you is to blame, George, then YOU are. Go back to the ranch.
This is very odd:
For Florida, CNN is reporting:Bush: 1,822,029 (56%)Kerry: 1,415,004 (43%)with 41% precincts reporting.
But Florida's Department of Elections is reporting:Bush: 1,737,535 (52.3%)Kerry: 1,552,498 (46.8%)With 41.2% reporting
In other words, CNN is reporting more Bush votes and fewer Kerry votes than Florida itself is. My question is: Where does CNN get it's numbers???
