In contemporary politics, the wife of John Edwards, a presumed contender in Campaign 2008, was assigned a freeSpeech commentary by CBS. Elizabeth Edwards suggested a human face on her husband's pro-working-class populist message. Please, she urged, treat those underpaid service workers at the supermarket checkout counters as human beings. "They have names you know. Chances are they were even wearing their names on their shirts. But did you notice?" Edwards added, "decency costs nothing."
And NBC's Chip Reid filed his version of the report ABC's Jeffrey Kofman filed on Wednesday. The dreaded consequence of those electronic voting machines has materialized--no paper trail for a recount in a too-close-to-call election. In his series Making Your Vote Count, Reid noted the irony that the outgoing Congresswomen in Florida's 13th was Katherine Harris, the election official whose handling of the Campaign 2000 recount led to the switch to electronic in the first place. "She said the state would become a national model for smooth elections."
