Every Vote Gets Counted

In Cook County, Illinois every vote gets counted. Just to be sure sometimes they get counted six or seven times.

Of Sen. Obama's 711,000 popular-vote lead, 650,000 -- or more than 90% of the total margin -- comes from Sen. Obama's home state of Illinois, with 429,000 of that lead coming from his home base of Cook County.

That margin in Cook County represents almost 60% of Obama's total lead nationwide.

Interestingly, Sen. Obama's 429,000-vote margin in Cook County alone is larger than the winning margin of either candidate in any state.

Chicago Dems still know how to support their candidates better than anyone else in the country...

Hey thanks for the great blog, I love this stuff. I donít usually read much into politics but with the election coming up (not to mention the dem primaries) and everyone going green these days I thought I would leave a comment.

I am trying to find more about the government and if they are going to ratify the Kyoto Protocol any time soon. Has anyone seen this pole on EarthLab.com http://www.earthlab.com/life.aspx ? It said 75% of people think the government should ratify the Kyoto Protocol on Earth Day (when I took it). I also saw something on Wikipedia but it wasnít up to date. Any other thoughts on where the government is going with this?

I am looking for more info on what candidatesí opinions are and how are we are going to get closer to solutions. Drop a link if you see anything worth my time.

Why not look into the actual science. The indications are from the latest satellite data and ocean monitoring data and solar science that we are headed for a Little Ice Age.

So carbon taxes are just what we need eh?

Kyoto will not be ratified. Americans are not falling for that scam. At least not unless you can get China and India on board.
