Too late. It already is. There've been something like 700 legislative
challenges to the electoral system in the last 200 years, to say nothing about
the tactical / mechanical election issues. This is going to force the issue:
legislators (the venerable / crusty Arlen Spector, for one) from both sides of
the aisle are already proposing new amendment legislation. We're on trial,
everywhere it counts: legislature, judiciary, court of public opinion,

I'm pretty sure that Al knows the way from the Naval Observatory to 1600
Pennsylvania. And even Bush couldn't screw up with AA's schedule of flights
from ABIA to DC. ;-) The more interesting question is, WTF can *either* of

going to see the inauguration of the Lame Duck Presidency.
