I'm still where I was last month. Of all the votes to be cast in this Senate race, the only nine that count are wearing black robes in Washington DC. The legacy of Bush v Gore, 2000, will be the effective federalizing of all elections (which are ALWAYS state mechanisms, lest we forget the fact that there is no such thing as a national election . . . save for the electoral college's 538 vote casters). 225 votes is a statistical tie. So is 537.
