    Please, please, please 

    Obviously I want George Bush to win. But I have an almost equal wish: that whoever wins, either Bush or John Kerry, wins big, at least by 3 or 4 percent, so we can head off the recounts and the lawsuits and the wrangling that goes on for (at least) the rest of the year. I would like to go to bed Tuesday night (or get up Wednesday morning) with a president-elect and a losing candidate who has conceded gracefully. It goes against a lot of my local-is-better, libertarian leanings to say this, but we're LONG overdue for some sensible and uniform national election guidelines. At the top of my wish list: voting that goes on for 24 hours, or maybe even or a weekend.
