Kerry finally breaks his silence about the vote

At Boston's annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day Breakfast yesterday, John Kerry finally had somethng to say about the election results:

"Voting machines were distributed in uneven ways. In Democratic districts, it took people four, five, 11 hours to vote, while Republicans [went] through in 10 minutes—same voting machines, same process, our America. In a nation which is willing to spend several hundred million dollars in Iraq to bring them democracy, we cannot tolerate that here in America too many people were denied that democracy."

Too many people are denied democracy every day in America, and Mr. Kerry is right—we cannot keep tolerating it.
