We need a landslide

According to today's Washington Post, the presidential election will probably be decided in 11 states where polls currently show the race too tight to predict a winner. But there's something even scarier: a computer analysis showed that there are 33 combinations in which those 11 states could divide to produce a 269 to 269 electoral tie.

And ties are resolved by the House of Representatives. Which currently has a Republican majority.

We need John Kerry to win by a large enough margin that there will be no doubt whom we want as president. Otherwise, Bush and the Supremes will find a way to steal the election again, and Bush will have a chance to finish the job he's only just begun.
