we're really delaying the voting system overhaul because we're waiting for Republican votes in Congress? Please.
The reason we're delaying it is because the Democrats took back the House and Senate and they're leery of doing anything to upset any apple carts. If we were serious about correcting the Mistake of 2000, we'd have had a national referendum on the Electoral College by now. It wasn't just the machines, it was the system. Which has never worked perfectly (how many dead people voted for LBJ? probably about as many as have summer/winter homes and voted in at least one state as an absentee).
All the delay is just posturing. Let's admit the truth: no one, in Congress or in state legislatures, wants change.
