I can't find any accounts of Dino Rossi demanding a revote in the 2000 presidential election

But you would think he would have, since he's demanding one for the Washington State gubernatorial race that was so close. Even though there is a winner and all, and Gregoire won by a vote of the people and not a court appointment.

Quoth the loser: "I would not want to enter my governorship with so many people viewing my governorship as illegitimate."

I wonder if he would have said the same to W four years ago...

Quoth Rossi: "I would not want to enter my governorship with so many people viewing my governorship as illegitimate."

I think it's telling he didn't say that very thing two weeks ago, when he "won" by 42 votes. Didn't hear him asking for a re-vote then, did we?

Did y'all catch the article in the Stranger about the election?

"If Rossi loses this race, there is already speculation that he will run against Cantwell in 2006. A narrow winner over Slade Gorton in 2000, she is going to be vulnerable, and Rossi, who is obviously that rare Washington R who can win statewide (he's done it twice) will have tremendous name recognition--and voter sympathy.".

Maria Cantwell is another Dem that I just can't abide by. It could be the same old same old at the mid-terms...
