The general feeling is that this election will be a close one, possibly without a clear winner until the early morning hours. And even then, it may not be that clear. USA Today is praying for a decisive election anyway.
From today's editorial:
Former secretary of State James Baker, who led the Republicans' fight in Florida and co-chaired an influential commission on election problems with former president Jimmy Carter in 2005, acknowledged on Fox News last week that recounts could occur in several states this year. "I hope it doesn't happen," Baker quickly added. "It would be better for America's democracy if it doesn't."
Amen to that. America's democracy is remarkably resilient, but after a long and divisive campaign season, the nation is best served by an unambiguous result.
