On CNN (with me about an hour ago) also wants to take as much time as necessary to count all the provisional votes and absentee ballots in Ohio.

Frankly, I would not expect many Democrats to break from that party line until Kedwards says so or until peasants with pitchforks are at the door.

Privately – by which I mean in the CNN green room — I’ve now spoken to two prominent Democrats who acknowledge not only that Bush won, but also that this was a huge election for Republicans.

Keep in mind: The country is split almost down the middle. Nevertheless, the Republicans keep the White House, the Senate, the House, a majority of governorships and (I believe, though I haven’t really checked) a majority of state legislatures as well.

That’s could be called over-achieving.
