Oh man. JIMMAH!

Politics: Poor James Baker having to deal with these idiots.

"Former President Jimmy Carter will lead a bipartisan commission to examine problems with the U.S. election system, American University's Center for Democracy and Election Management said on Thursday. Carter, a Democrat whose Carter Center has monitored more than 50 elections around the world, will co-chair the private commission with Republican James Baker, who served as Secretary of State under President George H. W. Bush. Former Senate Minority Leader Tom Daschle, a Democrat who lost his seat in the 2004 election, will also participate. "I am concerned about the state of our electoral system and believe we need to improve it," Carter said in a statement. He said the group will assess "issues of inclusion" in federal voting and propose recommendations to improve the process. "We will try to define an electoral system for the 21st century that will make Americans proud again," he said. "....Still, concerns emerged about exceedingly long lines that kept voters from the polls in several states including Ohio, whose 20 electoral college votes ultimately decided the election in President Bush (news - web sites)'s favor. "

Heaven forbid long lines in a hyped up election cycle. Those poor people having to wait to vote in a line! That "issues of inclusion" bit is a dead giveaway of them trying to figure out how to rig the system more favorable to typical demo voters.
