Four more fears?

Well, I heard on the radio this morning that Ohio is behind Bush and that he therefore wins the election. I'm glad that there are far more parties involved in our Dutch parliament, with many different 'hues' of political opinions, and that it isn't such a black and white situation as the Republicans/Democrats system in the USA. In my opinion, a true democracy is a blend of many different views and opinions, and not those of one party alone.

Well, it depends who you listen to "calling the states".
From what I heard, it was only NBC and Fox News (again) who call Ohio already. All other major networks still say "to early to call". The German TV seems to stick with CNN, in the instant CNN updates their elctoral votes counter, so do ARD and ZDF.
And the New York Times actually does a much more "conservative" calling of states ("conservative" in the sense that they wait for more reliable numbers before calling).
Check this out.
Hint: relaoding the page automatically putting it on a separate screen is s a neat news ticker (if you have the equipment...).

Update: As of 5:19 AM ET (i.e. 11:19 CET) the NYT reports Iowa, Nevada, New Mexico, Ohio and Wisconsin as "undecided" states. For long, Michigan was listed as undecided as well, even though other networks already called it in the Kerry column. Now, the NYT followed that and also colored MI blue.

Update: I just saw that the German TV station ARD has called Wisconsin blue as well, leaving Iowa, Wisconsin and Ohio in the undecided column and resulting in a electoral votes count of 254 (Bush) to 252 (Kerry). That now makes it even clearer. No matter what happens in Iowa and New Mexico (even both becoming red), it still depends on Ohio's outcome.
And from what I hear/read (e.g. here, that could quite well be challenged by the losing campaign, whichever that might be in the end.
Thus, my bet now would be that we'll have a decision in courts again...

Sigh - Assuming that he wins, what's next for Bush, now that he is confirmed and sure that he is doing the right thing by God and voters ?

Closing the borders of the USA for all foreigners ? Annexing all the oil-countries and subduing them ? Anybody have an idea ?

One thing I do like about him being re-elected : He's going to sit in what he created the last 4 years. I wonder how long it will take before he realises that (and the rest of America).
