    Rossi led Gregoire by only 260 votes in Washington State’s 2004 Governor’s Race. This was the outcome of the first voting results in Washington state’s Governor’s Race, and as with any race this close; calling for a recount was Rossi’s only option, as it was also mandatory since the spread was less than 2,000 votes, and called for a machine recount, since only a hand recount is called if the spread is less than 150. Three counts of nearly 3 million ballots, four lawsuits, and seven weeks later the state of Washington discovered that what was thought to be a simple rec

I’ve known him since the very beginning of his political career, which was his campaign for the seat in my state senate district in Chicago. He struck me then as a vacuous opportunist, a good performer with an ear for how to make white liberals like him. I argued at the time that his fundamental political center of gravity, beneath an empty rhetoric of hope and change and new directions, is neoliberal. His political repertoire has always included the repugnant stratagem of using connection with black audiences in exact

This Elector (who is selected by the respective state in which a vote is cast) casts ballots for two individuals, the President and the Vice-President. Each state has the same number of electors as there are Senate and House

    Implicit within the excerpt is the idea that the individual is entitled to do anything he/she wants provided it doesn’t cause harm to others. There can be no intervention from the state or other individuals unless this is the case. To understand why, we must delve deeper into liberalism, the branch of political philosophy with which this excerpt is concerned. Liberalism is defined by Mill as the ability of the individual to execute his/her own “life-plan”. In short, this involves an individual being able to make his/her own decisions that influence his/her own life, regardless of what other in
