Kerry sort of un-conceding?
An email message from John Kerry popped into my inbox this afternoon, hinting that he isn't sure the election is over either:

Regardless of the outcome of this election, once all the votes are counted -- and they will be counted -- we will continue to challenge this administration. This is not a time for Democrats to retreat and accommodate extremists on critical principles -- it is a time to stand firm.I will fight for a national standard for federal elections that has both transparency and accountability in our voting system. It's unacceptable in the United States that people still don't have full confidence in the integrity of the voting

This doesn't sound like a guy who thinks there's zero chance he could win. With a reputable research team at UC Berkeley calling for an investigation into the Florida vote, anything is possible in Ohio. Could "the Closer" still pull this one out? I seriously doubt it, but I wouldn't rule it out, and neither will he. Even if he still ends up on the losing end of a recount, at least he's finally gotten behind the call for voting machine transparency.
