It's not over in Washington State. A hand count of 500 ballots in King County is underway, and if the trend continues, it is possible that Gregoire could wind up winning the election by fewer than 20 votes out of 3 million cast.
As I said before, Gregoire took a lot of heat for not giving up. I applaud the woman. Democracy means counting every vote, even if it's inconvenient. And, regardless of whether she ultimately wins this election, the lame-ass Democratic party could take a major lesson from this woman's chutzpah.
