I think Democrats often hold the unconstrained vision, and Republicans focus more on the Rule of Law.

You don't even know if they exist.

That the decision is taken away from the voters, and as in 2000 turned over to the lawyers and the courts.

No party has a monopoly on honesty, but with the collapse of old-style GOP machines in places like Indiana and Long Island, New York, it's Democrats who have a greater opportunity to cheat.

Well, Mr. Kerry's constant unfounded references to African-Americans having their votes: "stolen" or "taken away" in 2000 are far more likely to exacerbate racial divisions.

That is a judicious way of handling these charges, rather than having them played out on television, where everything gets confused and the trivial gets mixed in with other stuff that is legitimate.

The bottom line on all of this is that, increasingly, election systems are so sloppy in New York that you cannot tell where the incompetence ends and the fraud could begin.

Given that Mr. Kerry is clearly exaggerating what happened to minority voters in the 2000 election in Florida, maybe we should wait for him to provide evidence of what he is alleging in 2004.
