Kerry voters for Nader

In a karmic flipflop, Kerry supporters have a reason to support Nader. More importantly, folks concerned about the validity of new electronic voting system, have a reason to support him as well.

Nader is requesting a recount, in a state that Kerry won. You and I don't have grounds to request a recount. Kerry needs to maintain an image of gracefully accepting defeat and moving on. Since Kerry won the state, republicans don't have much reason to resist. But if any voting irregularities are discovered, it opens the flood gates for all the states.

At a minimum, it should help to determine if a meaningful recount can even be done on the current generation of Direct Recording Electronic voting machines.
