This just in! Democratic presidential ,long/no shot, hopeful Dennis Kucinich is requesting a recount of democratic ballots that were cast during the NH state's primary. It seems to me that in every presentational race, someone always mandates or orders a recount because of the belief that they were wronged in someway. So why is this even newsworthy? For Two Reasons:
1) Dennis is under no illusions that he did not win the Primary.
2. For once, someone is putting their MONEY where their mouth is.
Dennis has agreed , so far, to pay for the recount. Of course, in the grand scheme of things the 2K he is going spend on this will be a proverbial "drop in the bucket" compared with all other expenditures. Whats more shocking, to me at lest, is that the Deputy Secretary of State David Scanlan is not the lest bit concerned about this recount. His attitude thus far is "This will just prove that the ballot numbers were accurate this first time around." Absolutely amazing! No gripping or winning about their results shouldn't need to be reconfirmed or how much time it will take, yadda yadda. Assuming the recount turns up the same numbers (within an acceptable margin of error maybe +/- <1%) as the originally count, we should get NH counters to help others states, who just can't seem to get it right...Florida comes to mind, especially Volusha (sp) county. Maybe with a little training on how numbers and votes actually are suppose to add up, not subtract will actually see something more than "Hmm thats funny" when a candidate receives NEGATIVE votes...... One can only hope.
