Drudge linked to a piece about Kerry wanting to avoid the recount errors that Gore faced in 2000. But the statement that caught my eye was this:

Sen. John Kerry, bracing for a potential fight over election results, will not hesitate to declare victory Nov. 2 and defend it, advisers say. He also will be prepared to name a national security team before knowing whether he’s secured the presidency.

What does this tell you about Kerry? From just this story alone, it seems Kerry and his team are going to do whatever it takes to take the presidency. Even if it means claiming a false victory. The only reason I can think he is going to do this would be to discourage voters in later time zones from voting for Bush and possibly pull undecided voters over to “the winning team”.
November 3rd is going to be an ugly, ugly day.
