PRESIDENT RE-ELECTED

It's not technically over but Kerry is certainly not in a position of strength. The incumbent president leads the popular vote by 3.5 million, he leads the electoral college, and he leads in all three states that have not officially been declared. His lead in the all important Ohio is by some 140,000 votes, which seems insurmountable regardless of any recount or provisional ballots.

Living in a Society declares this election for George W. Bush.

The process seems to have been clearer and more definitive than last time. Americans certainly turned out in record numbers for this election. There are a few allegations of irregularities but it does not seem like anything too substantial. I'm not saying the process was perfect but it seems to have worked. And democracy is all about the process.
