The Ohio Recount

Rick Perlstein has written a very useful summary of what has gone on in Ohio with the presidential election recount. It's not an essay that will please everyone, certainly not the conspiracy buffs (of which we have a growing number). But it contains some useful (& practical) advice for Democratic activists who should learn how to deal with an elections system whose confusion, as Perlstein says, "advantages the more ruthless party, the Republicans." Democrats have to learn how to be ruthless too, a tall order for a bunch of bleeding hearts.
